10 MHz Ultra-Low Close-In Phase Noise with Stabilized PPS NR6720-O/G/A6

10 MHz Low Close-In Phase Noise with Stabilized PPS

With Time Stamping


The NR6720-HS/A6 features extremely low frequency jitter despite being GNSS-locked. GNSS-locking brings a long-term stability to an OCXO that is difficult to match. Instead of an accuracy of 50 ppb/year – accuracies of ~E-12 are readily achieved. However, locking an OCXO to the GNSS presents its own set of problems. The timing information from the GNSS is burdened with all the noise one would expect from a RF link – multi-path, reflections, etc. Long-term stability is enhanced frequently at the expense of “close-in” stability. Low frequency components from the RF link are introduced to the OCXO, often degrading the Allan Deviation of the OCXO. The NR6720-HS/A6 uses a unique crystal and proprietary control loop to minimize “close-in” degradation while securing long-term stability. The unit also features very low PPS pulse-to- pulse jitter. Instead of the +- 10 ns of PPS jitter from the receiver, the PPS stabilizer reduces PPS jitter to under 800 ps. The unit also offers a high resolution time stamp that can capture up to 25 events at a rate of 10 kHz.

Kits are available that include antenna, cables and power supply. Several features can be customized at the factory – frequencies other than 10 MHz either from a unique crystal or with a built-in synthesizer that is GNSS-locked. Time stamping capability to 100ns resolution. To meet unique requirements, we have shipped product with output features requiring a custom amplitude, square wave output, high voltage and high current drive.
