Technical Resources

The stability characteristics of a frequency source over temperature and time are key components in the design of wireless base stations, precision test and measurement equipment, network timing sources and military communications equipment. Rubidium Oscillator stability forms the foundation of a frequency or timing reference and the performance will show through in the overall system performance. Vectron has 70+ years in working with customers to ensure the success of their design.
