Pagination or Media Count:
The effects of acceleration on quartz and atomic frequency sources are reviewed. Guidelines are provided for the specification and testing of oscillator acceleration sensitivities. The discussion includes steady-state acceleration effects, gravity change effects, shock effects, and vibration effects. The vibration effects section includes sinusoidal vibration, random vibration, acoustic noise, the effects on short term stability, and spectral responses at other than the vibration frequency.
