Virtex-5/6, GTX/GTH - How to convert Oscillator Phase Noise to Time Jitter?


My oscillator does not provide the phase noise parameter, only jitter value.

How to convert phase noise (dBc/Hz) to time jitter (ps)?


Analog Devices has a tutorial for converting noise to jitter: http://www.analog.com/static/imported-files/tutorials/MT-008.pdf.

It is recommended to contact the manufacturer for the phase noise specifications.
