Introducing YOMIC (YIG Oscillator Monolithic Integrated Circuit): the YIG based oscillator designed for battery usage and available in a surface-mount package. YOMIC can tune in < 1 micro-sec ± 100 MHz around a factory select center frequency between 2 and 20 GHz. Coming soon is a 10 to 20 GHz wide tuning version in a 0.5" × 0.7" surface-mount package.

Low Noise OCXO
Morion released the new MV269, low noise OCXO in a small DIL14 package, measuring just 21 mm × 13 mm × 9.5 mm. Available from 60 to 120 MHz, the MV269 has phase noise of -153 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset and < -170 dBc/10 kHz, sinewave or HCMOS. Works at 5 or 3.3 V. Temperature stability at < 5E-8 from 0° to 60°C. Frequency adjustment for external synchronization provided, but due to <1E-7/year aging may work as a stand-alone unit. Ideal as a reference oscillator in synthesizer and PLL circuits.
