Abstract : The Tactical Miniature Crystal Oscillator (TMXO) and its more significant design features have been described previously. In this paper, the performance characteristics of the early TMXO models will be presented. In addition, performance results representative of more recent units which use SC-cut crystals are included and mechanical changes to improve the internal structural characteristics are discussed. Finally, a test oscillator useful in evaluating crystals is described.
