Continuing with our concept that individual components necessary for building our larger test systems can often (by themselves) be useful - we give you the XO101 Crystal Oscillator Kit. Electrical engineers, EE Students and the like, often need a reference (time base) frequency to work from. The XO101 kit includes a series of oscillators with common frequencies, ranging from 1MHz to 40MHz. Wether you need a basic clock oscillator to complete a project, or a solid time base for reference purposes, we believe you will find this kit useful. "Sometimes you have an idea that requires a specific signal source to accurately flush it out. Having a kit with a wide range of options available is quite handy. An oscillator kit like this is a great addition to any electrical engineers toolbox" - Alan Snavely, COO ER&D also expects to offer an evaluation board with our next kit, that will allow users to easily interface with their test equipment and measure oscillator parameters. Some of the parameters you can expect to measure with our forth coming Oscillator / Eval Board Kit include: Frequency 
Frequency Pulling
 Aging
 Wave Form Characteristics
 Current Consumption
 Phase Noise
 Micro-jumps
 Jitter We expect to release this Evaluation Board and Crystal Oscillator Kit in the very near future. For updates on this and other product releases check our website regularly at http://esterlineresearch.com or follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/esterlinerd .

RF Distribution Amp - A useful module

5 channel distribution amp will feature SMA inputs and outputs with optional programmable output power. Input power is supplied via wall wart, screw terminals (+6VDC), or USB power from PC. With a 3.5" x 3.3" x 0.5" footprint this distribution amplifier can be embedded in larger RF systems requiring low noise distribution of reference signals. The default option is discrete filtering set for 10MHz reference distribution.
