AUSTIN, TX – Abracon, LLC (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronization, RF, connectivity and power components, augments phase noise to jitter calculator with phase noise in radians. Oscillators for high performance applications such as communications, test and measurement, high performance computing (HPC) and RF systems typically specify single-sided phase noise but may not specify jitter or may not specify over the appropriate integration band. Calculating phase jitter from phase noise becomes necessary when comparing clocks and oscillators for a given application. In RF applications, the integrated phase jitter may be more significant than units of seconds. As new technology, such as FPGAs, add RF capabilities on-chip, high end RF system designers have a greater need to understand the complete phase jitter picture. Abracon’s Phase Noise to Jitter Calculator was designed as an interactive tool that easily bridges the gap between phase noise and jitter. A new feature automatically calculates and presents the jitter in radians over the specified integration band.

“The extra step of calculating the phase jitter in radians is now completely automatic using Abracon’s phase noise to jitter calculator,” says Juan Conchas, Abracon’s Director of Marketing, “Adding this feature saves designers time and minimizes errors that result from hand calculations.”

The calculator also features pre-loaded phase noise profiles of existing oscillators operating at various carrier frequencies. For instance, selecting the AOCJY7-100.000MHz shows an impressive 8.1fs of output jitter over 12kHz to 20MHz band corresponding to 5.1µrad. To save and compare results, you can export your phase noise plot and output jitter data into a PDF download.
