Satellite Communication:GPS-Frequency-Reference-Satellite-Earth-Stations

The satellite communications infrastructure provides critical services for government and civil applications at increasing carrier frequencies and data rates. Within the ground and space-borne systems are devices that generate microwave level frequencies that form uplinks and downlinks. At the core of these systems are high-quality frequency references that are fundamental to establishing stable, high bandwidth communication links. Minimizing noise levels, particularly phase noise, within earth station equipment is critical to supporting reliable communications. This application note focuses on the value of a GPS frequency reference providing atomic oscillator stability and ultra-low phase noise within the earth station.
