AR133 Multi-Functional Rubidium Frequency Standard

Product Description

The AR133 family of products is AccuBeat’s new generation multi-functional Rubidium Frequency Standard.  The AR133 family of products includes several different sub versions and is one of the smallest atomic standards available today, where the accuracy and stability are derived from a quantum transition that occurs in a free rubidium atom. The unit utilizes a unique advanced technology, which allows reducing the unit’s size without sacrificing performance.

 

The AR133 is comprised of a unique DFLL (Digital Frequency Lock Loop) where a high performance crystal oscillator is locked to the rubidium atomic line using an embedded microprocessor and a special patented algorithm. The algorithm optimizes the performance vs. external disturbances, improves temperature stability, and enables very fine digital frequency control.

 

Please refer to the Datasheet for a detailed specification and a list of the different customized versions available. Please contact us if you require a unique specification not currently listed.

AR133 special modes of operation:

  • Disciplined to an external 1PPS: this improves the long-term-stability, the accuracy, and synchronizes the phase of the 1PPS output to the 1PPS input.

  • Power-saving modes (options): for applications where power is limited, the AR133 offers several power saving modes that can be selected by the user.

  • Mixed Mode (Option) – in this mode the physics package, which is the main power consumer, is turned on and off periodically, allowing lower average power consumption. In this mode the internal OCXO supplies accurate frequency calibrated to the atomic clock frequency. Although performance is slightly reduced, power consumption is significantly lower in this mode.

  • OCXO Disciplined Mode (Option) – this mode implements an OCXO disciplining to external 1PPS (with Physics Package shut-down) and consumes even lower power of about 1.8 W.
