Title: Three Critical Oscillator Parameters and How They Impact Your Next Design

Date: February 14, 2023

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: Microchip

Presented by: Will Krzewick, Principal Engineer, Product Marketing, Frequency and Time Systems, David Chandler, Manager, Strategic Marketing, Frequency and Time Systems and Dan Piscotty, Principal Engineer for Microchip Technology’s Vectron Oscillator Products

This webinar will help electrical designers better understand the importance of oscillator phase noise, short-term stability (Allan Deviation) and frequency accuracy. We will cover the concepts and definitions, discuss oscillator performance levels and include some examples of real-world applications.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about the key oscillator metrics to consider for Radio Frequency (RF) design
  • Understand performance tradeoffs of different oscillators
  • See the real-world impact of oscillator performance

Presenter Bios:

Will Krzewick is a principal engineer of product marketing in the frequency and time systems (FTS) business unit at Microchip Technology. He is responsible for managing rubidium oscillators, GNSS disciplined oscillators (GPSDO) and test sets. He also supports numerous atomic clock products and has co-authored several papers on their applications. Previously, Krzewick worked in the defense industry researching and modeling radio frequency (RF) and microwave technology. He earned his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Boston University and his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts-Lowell.

David Chandler received a BS in Applied Engineering Physics from Cornell University, and an MEng in Electrical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University. After serving in the US Army, David joined McCoy Electronics 1996, which through various acquisitions is now part of Microchip. During his tenure he has worked as an engineer and product line manager for various frequency controls products. He is currently the product line manager for system clocks, including cesium standards and hydrogen masers, in the Frequency and Time Systems business unit.

Dan Piscotty is a principal engineer for Microchip Technology’s Vectron division based in Mount Holly Springs, Pennsylvania. Dan holds a Master of Electrical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University and has over 25 years of experience in signal integrity, fluid sensors, active cancellation and RF design. Prior to his current role, he was a senior design engineer for FR-4 and hybrid based TCXO’s and OCXO’s for commercial, military, and high-reliability space applications.
