Abstract:

Design and performance of a Wien-bridge oscillator operating at 100 cps are presented. A frequency stability of .001 has been obtained over a temperature range from -55 to 85 C with a 20- percent supply voltage change. This is one order of magnitude better than the performance of oscillators preceding this design. The use of a highimpedance RC network and field-effect transistors led to a small-sized oscillator with low power consumption 1 mw. The performance of network components subjected to 20,000 g indicates that the stability will not be degraded under shock and vibration. Author
