SPECTRAN V6 Phase Noise

I am wondering if you have any phase noise data available for the V6?

The data is not final yet but attached is a first quick and dirty measurement @100MHz and @1GHz using a RSA2000X with OCXO (the test signal is generated via the Tx):

SPECTRAN V6 Phase Noise @ 100MHz

SPECTRAN V6 Phase Noise @ 1GHz

Hi,

I see these numbers are with OCXO which is an add on option. Is this any different with default internal clocking?

 

Yes, with default TCXO we are speaking about 10-20dB less.

Many thanks for your quick reply. Also is there data available for 10kHz,100kHz and 1MHz offset frequencies?

I can offer you an additional 10kHz measurement (OCXO version):

100MHz Phase Noise (Tx used as signal generator):

100MHz Phase Noise with OCXO and internal Tx

 

100MHz Phase Noise (via external signal generator):

100MHz Phase Noise Measurement

 

 

1GHz Phase Noise (Tx used as signal generator):

1GHz Phase Noise with OCXO and internal Tx

 

1GHz Phase Noise (via external signal generator):

1GHz Phase Noise Measurement

 

P.S. This is how the measurement looks:
