Timing & Synchronization resources

There is a lot of information available on the internet for engineers who want to learn more about frequency control, synchronization and clocks in general.

We thought it would be beneficial to collect some of these resources together in one place with the intent of tracking information down a little easier. Note this list is a work in progress that we will be adding to over time.

Specific Topics

Frequency Stability

Jitter and Phase Noise

Jitter and Wander

Collections and General

In general. the Article and Application Note collection on the Vectron website is a good place to start.

Bill Wriley is the author of the Stable 32 software package and maintains links to useful material on his site:

Standards and Societies

NIST Time and Frequency Division has some very useful resources, including a glossary and links to articles of general interest:

The IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, And Frequency Control Society (UFFC) maintains some very helpful introductory material:

Conferences and Workshops

In the U.S. NIST/ATIS hosts the Workshop on Synchronization in Telecommunication Systems (WSTS). They provide links to past presentations on their site:

In Europe the International Telecom Sync Forum (ITSF) hosts a similar set of workshops to WSTS, and they also provide links to past presentations:

Exploring Wider Frequency and Time Topics

There is a small but thriving hobbyist community dedicated to understanding timing technology. Tom Van Baak maintains some interesting material on his site:
