Power Matters. TM 2 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY For Frequency Generation You need… The Earth rotating A pendulum (mechanical oscillator) Electronic Oscillator … a method of generating a repeatable event Atomic resonance
Power Matters. TM 3 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY What is Frequency Frequency = the number of cycles per second Ideal frequency source generates a pure, repeatable sine wave Frequency = the number of cycles per second Ideal frequency source generates a pure, repeatable sine wave
Power Matters. TM 4 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY Related Frequency Definitions Offset – the frequency error from the ideal (fast or slow) Accuracy – refers to frequency offset of a device Stability – how well an oscillator produces time or frequency over a given time interval Aging – change of frequency over time (also called drift) Temperature Stability – the change of frequency over temperature Accumulated Time Error – total of all the above characteristics acting on a clock
Power Matters. TM 5 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY Performance Definitions Short Term Stability – the change of frequency over 1-100 seconds from noise and vibration. Sometimes called flicker or jitter Long Term Stability – the change of frequency over hours, days, or months. Result due to age and temperature Phase Noise – The rapid, short-term, random fluctuations in the phase of a sine wave due to oscillator quality, semi- conductor and white noise

Power Matters. TM 7 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY Oscillator Stability Over Time Frequency stability typically improves in the short term, stabilizes, then becomes less predictable in the long term
Power Matters. TM 8 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY What are the Influences on Oscillator Frequency Time Short term (noise) Long term (aging) Temperature Static frequency versus temperature Dynamic frequency versus temperature (warm-up) Thermal history (retrace) Acceleration Gravity, vibration, shock Other Power supply variation Humidity
Power Matters. TM 9 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY Taking Frequency Measurements Frequency measurements are performed over a time interval: t 1 to t 2 : Signal 1 = Signal 2 t 1 to t 3 : Signal 2 is more stable than Signal 1 Frequency measurements are performed over a time interval: t 1 to t 2 : Signal 1 = Signal 2 t 1 to t 3 : Signal 2 is more stable than Signal 1
Power Matters. TM 10 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY Short and Long Term Oscillator Stability Some oscillators perform better short term… others long term
Power Matters. TM 11 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY What is Phase Noise Unwanted noise sidebands on either side of the output signal center frequency caused by random variations of the frequency and the phase of the carrier
Power Matters. TM 12 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY What is Single Side Band Phase Noise The SSB is defined as the ratio of power in one phase modulation sideband to the total signal power
Power Matters. TM 13 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY What is Oscillator Phase Noise Phase noise is a short term noise component indicative of the spectral purity of an oscillator signal
Power Matters. TM 14 © 2014 Microsemi Corporation. COMPANY PROPRIETARY What is one part in 1.0E-10 ? (As in 1 x 10 -10 /day aging) ~1/2 cm out of the circumference of the Earth. ~1/4 second per human lifetime (of ~80 years). Power received on Earth from a GPS satellite, -160 dBW, is as “bright” as a flashlight in Los Angeles when viewed in New York City, ~5000 km away What is -170 dB? (As in -170 dBc/Hz phase noise) -170 dB = 1 part in 1017 ~thickness of a sheet of paper out of the total distance traveled by all the cars in the world in a day Putting the Fundamentals into Perspective… The second is the most precise SI unit of measure!
