In an ideal world, an oscillator’s output waveform would only be at one specific and exact frequency and also be stable with regards to time; however all oscillator output signals also include ‘noise’ whether that is in the form of fluctuations in frequency, time or amplitude. Therefore, we need some metrics to measure and make sense of these imperfections. That is where jitter and phase noise come in. So what exactly is jitter and phase noise and why should it be taken into consideration for applications? What is Jitter? Variations in the frequency domain are referred to as "phase noise" and variations in the time domain as "jitter". For this, consider a signal with two states, ‘on’ or… Read Full Blog Post
