and innovative design characterize Wenzel Associates,
Inc. as the leader in low phase noise crystal
oscillators, synthesizers and frequency related modules.
Since 1978, the company has defined the state-of-the-art
in ultra-low phase noise while providing system
manufactures with the highest quality, cost effective
frequency components and instruments.
Bandwidth and resolution
have become increasingly critical in communications,
military systems and test equipment, increasing the
demand for Wenzel’s low noise, high stability
oscillators and rack-mounted sources. In 1998 Wenzel
Associates introduced the Blue Tops system building
blocks to offer oscillator users well-characterized, low
noise components, which improved the time to market for
new frequency based systems. The Blue Tops line has
grown to include amplifiers, multipliers, regenerative
dividers, PLL’s, and filters for systems of all types.
Wenzel has integrated Blue Tops technology into
ultra-low noise and low spurious frequency sources and
synthesizers to 22 GHz.
An increased awareness of
the effects of vibration on system performance came with
improvements in phase noise. Wenzel Associates has
become a leader in low noise under vibration through
extensive work with special custom crystals, vibration
isolation systems and phase locking techniques for high
system integrity under extreme environments. Wenzel
provides phase noise testing under vibration to several
large military manufacturers.
