Plate Assemblies

Wenzel Associates’ offers plate assemblies which are comprised of one or more industry leading Ultra Low Noise Ovenized Crystal oscillators, Blue Tops RF Modules and other hardware mounted on an aluminum plate, to provide a high performance frequency source with unparalleled phase noise performance at frequencies to 16 GHz. These plates are suitable for use as a bench top frequency standard or mounting within a larger assembly as part of a system. Custom plate assemblies are available with short development time and low cost.
