Stanford PRS10 Rubidium Frequency Standard
PRS 10 Rubidium Frequency Standard (Distributed only in Germany.)
The PRS10 is an ultra-low phase noise 10 MHz frequency standard that disciplines a crystal oscillator to a hyperfine transition in the ground state of rubidium.
The device fulfills a variety of communication, synchronization, and instrumentation requirements. The phase noise of the 10 MHz output is low enough to be used as the reference source for synthesizers. The unit's short-term stability and low environmental coefficients make it an ideal component for network synchronization. Its low aging rate makes it an excellent timebase for precision frequency measurements.
The PRS10 can time-tag an external 1 pps input with 1 ns resolution. These values may be reported back via RS-232 or used to phase-lock the unit to an external reference (such as GPS) with time constants of several hours. This feature can provide Stratum 1 performance at a very low cost.
The PRS10 establishes a new level of features and performance in atomic frequency standards. Its design provides the lowest phase noise, greatest versatility, and easiest path to system integration of any rubidium frequency standard available.
