The Frequency Control Products Group has a powerful capability for the design and manufacture of space-qualified SAW resonators, which are used in SAW notch filters and SAW oscillators.
SAW oscillators can be implemented at substantially higher frequencies than quartz crystal oscillators, whilst retaining quartz’s intrinsic frequency/temperature stability. The devices offer excellent phase noise and frequency stability. A SAW voltage-controlled oscillator can be readily phase-locked to a crystal reference, giving a composite UHF source with the frequency stability of the reference and optimum close-in and far-out phase noise.
SAW resonator technology also allows passive UHF notch filters for suppression of unwanted signals to be implemented.
