Specs.. Hmmmm. Good question. The application is for a frequency
reference, so frequency stability vs. PPS accuracy is important. Cost
is perhaps less important than size. The OCXO under control is a
small, surface mount part with +/- 0.5 PPM over temp, but flexibility
to use higher accuracy parts would be good. As this is for an internal
application, I'm not sure how much else I can disclose.
