Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. MMD Components (Monitor & Quartztek) has introduced a line of high-frequency oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs) with a non-PLL (phase locked loop) design that enables users to specify frequencies up to 1 GHz. This is said to result in less external frequency multiplication, lower phase noise and low jitter.
Previously, the only available option for customers looking for high frequency in an OCXO was to purchase multiple low-frequency OCXOs that combined to provide the actual frequency required but often created additional phase noise and jitter, said the company.
Available in a variety of packages and voltage configurations, the high-frequency OCXOs can maintain stabilities as low as ±250 ppb over an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C and ±100 ppb at temperatures from -20°C to 70°C. In addition, the enhanced internal voltage regulation of the devices minimizes the requirements for high-stability power supplies and support supply voltages as low as 3.3 V.

Pricing for the high-frequency OCXOs start at $275 each in quantities of 25. Delivery is from stock to 14 weeks.
MMD also offers a low-cost series of OCXOs designated as the MOFL series.
