This SLIM is constructed on a common printed wiring board, the PWB-MOB.  Click to go to the page describing the Master Osc or Buffer.

    The SLIM-MO-64, Master Oscillator, contains a 64 MHz oscillator and 3 buffered line drivers.  Each output is 5 volt CMOS that can drive a 50 ohm line that is terminated with either, a high impedance load, or 50 ohms.  A 33 ohm resistor is shown as a series element in each output.
    The frequency will drift with temperature. I was able to test only one sample. It had a positive frequency/temperature coefficient of .15 parts per million per degree F (9.6 Hz / 1 deg F)

Revision History
Original Release: Released 7-1-2007
SLIM-MO-64 Rev 0,     SKSLIM-MO-64 Rev 0,      PWB-MOB Rev 0,    PLSLIM-MO-64 Rev 0

Revision A: Released on or about 4-30-2008
SLIM-MO-64 Rev A,     SKSLIM-MO-64 Rev A,      PWB-MOB Rev 0,    PLSLIM-MO-64 Rev A
Change to schematic and parts list.
    The only change from the original design is: delete the input ferite bead, FB1, and replace it with a 10 ohm resistor, R12.  This decreases the +10 volt, supply line noise.

Revision B: Released 6-11-2008
SLIM-MO-64 Rev B,     SK-MO-64 Rev B,      PWB-MOB Rev 0,    PLSLIM-MO-64 Rev B
Change to schematic and parts list.
    The only change from the previous revision is: Change R1, R2, and R3 from 49.9 ohms to 33 ohms for a better driving source impedance.

      A 33 ohm resistor is shown as a series element in each output.  For a 50 ohm line, with a high impedance load at the end of that line, the mismatched load will create a reflection.  The reflected signal will be dissipated in the series 33 ohm resistor plus the internal resistance of the driver (17 ohms).  For a 50 ohm line, with a 50 ohm load at the end of that line, the 50 ohm load will receive a 2.5 volt peak to peak square wave.  If this is not sufficient, the 33 ohm series resistor can be replaced with a low impedance coupling capacitor (.01 uf for 64 MHz).
  The 64 MHz oscillator can be replaced with any oscillator in the CTS series of CB3 oscillators.  There are other crystal oscillators with this footprint, but I have not researched them.
  Once temperature equalibrium has been reached, this oscillator is extremely stable.
    If this module is used in a system where fewer outputs are required, omit the drivers that are not needed.  This reduces power consumption.

    Notice, in the layout and the photo, that there are several pads with no components.  This is because the pwb (PWB-MOB) can be used for other functions, such as a sine to square converter.
