Customised Oscillators
These types of customised oscillators represent only our most popular units from a much wider range. As with all frequency control products the majority of users require unique specifications for many of their products. Hy-Q specialise in custom designs and hence any criteria which is not met from our standard range can usually be incorporated into a custom design. Whatever the requirement, even if it seems well outside the range of the standard products on offer, our technical staff are always available to discuss your application and decide upon the device specifications that best suit your needs.

General Note
Ageing: Ageing specifications are based on experience of our previously manufactured devices and are not explicitly guaranteed.

Additional Notes
When deciding upon package styles for oscillators, especially high frequency types, it is very important to consider harmonic content requirements. The size of the package dictates the type and number of poles of the filter which can be internally added to the oscillator output circuit. As package size increases, additional filtering can be added, and hence, improved harmonic suppression is achieved. Harmonic suppression is on of the factors most often overlooked by designers when specifying oscillator performance. It is also wise to consider the range of frequency pulling required when specifying a VCXO or TCXO.

Designers should pay attention to the following activities to achieve best overall oscillator performance when in use:

1. Very low noise power supplies must be used for all supply lines.
2. All power supply returns must be connected directly to the oscillator ground point.
3. All tracks and leads must me kept as short as possible.
4. The oscillators output must be correctly and accurately terminated.
5. Appropriate decoupling capacitors must be added between the supply and ground.
