Because of the frequency limitations and low phase noise performance of a single-loop based ring oscillator, other architectural techniques are necessary to reach lower levels of phase noise in ring oscillators.
Z-Series clock oscillators use Kyocera's platform structure, which combines a fixed size head unit (consisting of a quartz crystal, ceramic package and driver IC) mounted to a glass epoxy substrate in a variety of standard dimensions.
Considering the upper-mentioned, this article proposes a 16.384 MHz Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillator (VCXO) crystal oscillator used as reference for time scheduling (16.384 MHz divided by 500 equals 32.768 Hz--the most commonly used frequency in clock and time applications) and as a frequency reference to one or more Phase Locked Loop (PLL) circuits responsible to generate the required frequencies.
We can see that these dispersive curve equations are relevant to nonlinear small perturbation [epsilon], coefficient before nonlinear term [bar.[GAMMA]], and steady-state vibration amplitude of the pure Duffing oscillator [absolute value of [A.sub.2.sup.(0)].
