Low Phase Noise Quartz Crystal Oscillator
Model FE-102A

Operation @ 100 MHz
Low Phase Noise: -172 dBc
VCO Range: 5 PPM for 0 to +10 V
Low Profile: only 1" high

Function Description   Technical Characteristics

The FEI Series FE-102A features operation at 100 MHz, low phase noise of -172 dB, VCO range of 5 PPM for 0 to +10 V, and a low profile of only 1" Time stability is 2PPM/Year and 5PPM/5 years. Temperature stability is 0.25 PPM over 0 to 55C.

The FE-102A features the best phase noise performance available today in a quartz oscillator operating directly at 100 MHz. Typical phase noise is -135 dBc at 100 Hz from the carrier, -163 dBc at 1 kHz from the carrier, and -173 dBc at 10 kHz from the carrier. FEI manufactures a fifth overtone SC-cut crystal for this application.

The unit was designed for applications such as Low Noise Frequency Synthesis, Doppler Radar, Low Noise PLL Systems and Phase Noise Reference.
