OCXO packs low power, high stability in small package

A new double-oven oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) from Fox Electronics is said to offer the best ratio of stability to size and power consumption on the market. The new FDE/FDD505AH oscillator may be used in high-performance synthesizers, base stations, telecommunications products, and satellite receivers, as well as wireless and RF systems. In addition, the company said it can achieve rubidium-like performance in precision standards when disciplined by GPS.
