Low Jitter 20MHz oscillator

Jitter is a function of the phase noise profile.

Set your jitter spec., calculate your jitter from the phase noise

of your chosen oscillator.

Then you don't need to argue with anybody.

It's not difficult.


At what kind of offsets from the carrier should the phase noise
profile be measured, to give meaningful jitter characteristic ?

At least for measuring phase noise for oscillators for RF applications
(especially first LO), it is very hard to get meaningfully readings
within +/-1 kHz from carrier, even with high quality test equipment,
unless you use some deep crystal notch filters at the carrier
frequency.

Well, this begs the question: How do you do it?

Or begs (for) the question, which is a common use.

The concept is pretty straight forward;
take the single sided spectral noise power and
convert it total rms jitter.

Where’s it used, think about it for a second;
What is one of the primary concerns when you
apply a clk to any high performance digitizer?

What’s on the back end of any modern day acquisition system?

That's not an answer! You'll have to come up with something a little
more explicit!
