How to Measure Phase Noise with a Crystal Oscillator

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Apr 11, 2017 6:30:00 AM

In a perfect world, a crystal oscillator would generate a signal that remains steady, consistent and clear with no deviations, for as long as that signal needed to be transmitted. But of course, we don’t live in a perfect world, do we?

Top 4 Sources of Microvibration on Spacecrafts (Plus Free Checklist)

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Apr 6, 2017 7:32:00 AM

Spacecrafts must be designed to have very precise functionality when it comes to making the long journey to earth’s orbit and even beyond. Even simple vibrations can interfere with the spacecraft’s functionality during pre-launch transportation and powered flight.  In both cases, the spacecraft itself isn’t even being powered.

The Truth About Phase Noise

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Jan 24, 2017 6:31:00 AM

One of the most important criteria in determining how well an oscillator performs in a given application is phase noise. It is a somewhat esoteric concept that is not well understood outside of the engineering world, but it affects many of the RF technologies we take advantage of every day, including Wi-Fi and mobile phones, as well as more complex applications like avionics, radar, military communication systems and electronic warfare.
