Rubidium frequency standards are a low-drift alternative to an OCXO or TCXO with stability of < 1 ppb/year. As high-precision oscillators, Rubidium frequency standards are especially useful for measurement, testing, and many telecommunication applications. To further enhance a Rubidium based frequency reference, Novus offers Rubidium frequency references with an embedded low phase noise OCXO to meet system frequency reference phase noise requirements. A Rubidium reference is alternative source if a GPS disciplined oscillator is not an option.
Affording excellent stability, Rubidium frequency standards are a next best choice when operating in a GPS denied environment. That being said, adding a GPS-locking system will improve the 1ppb/year drift by approximately three orders of magnitude. For typical telecommunication infrastructure, GPS, or other types of applications, Rubidium standards offer excellent holdover performance.
A low cost reference featuring the stability of Rubidium (< 1 ppb/year). In many applications, an OCXO does not have the stability required and GNSS GPS locking is not an option. This reference offers excellent stability where cost is a major driver and the higher phase noise of Rubidium is acceptable. If low phase is also required see our NR2310D-RO that adds a low phase noise OCXO to improve phase noise. The ten channel configuration yields a better phase noise and skewing than a reference and a separate distribution amplifier. Skewing for the ten channels is less than 5 ns. This single rack unit chassis, having ten channels, frequently meets the needs of complex systems and often eliminates the need for a distribution amplifier.
