MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The July issue of MPD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

Ultra-Low Phase Noise VCXO

Ultra-Low Phase Noise VCXO

The company has launched a new ultra-low phase noise voltage controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) from Greenray Industries. These surface mount devices also offer low g-sensitivity performance, making them ideal for use where vibration conditions are encountered. The N623-1 VCXO offers nominal 100 MHz frequency sinewave output from a 9 x 14mm SMD package with typical phase noise performance ranging from -85 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz frequency offset up to -175 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz frequency offset. Phase noise is a critical characteristic in many applications, including communications and digital systems as well as high performance radar installations. The N623-1’s low-g sensitivity performance ensures that phase noise performance is maintained under vibration conditions, enabling their use as stable reference sources in communications, aerospace, and defense systems and applications. Other frequencies and options are available to special order. Environmental specifications include random vibration to MIL-STD-202, Meth 204, Cond A, and mechanical shock per MIL-STD-202, Meth 213, Cond C.
