Frequency Standards

Precision Frequency Standard

Precision Frequency Standard: Most high precision frequency standard in use utilise a geometric transverse (GT) cut quartz crystal as the frequency controlling resonant elements having changes in frequency of less than 1 part in 10 million per day. This GT quartz has the outstanding characteristic of exhibiting little variation in frequency over a temperature range […]

Primary Standard

Primary Standard: Primary Standard – One arrangement is a carefully designed quartz crystal oscillator operating in the range 50 to 100 kHz, having a low temperature coefficient, constant amplitude output and voltage regulated power supply. The crystal oscillator has a long time (several months) frequency stability of a few parts in a 100 million, without
