Yes, I really meant a "case" of OCXOs. 40 to be exact.
39 of them will be handled with care.
I cut around the bottom of the can, being careful not to go too deep in any spots.
Eventually the can just cracked off in my hand cleanly.
Lots of passive components and a couple of ICs visible from the top of the board.
I always expect to find more inside these oscillator units than I actually do.
The 14SOIC part is an LM2902 quad opamp.
There is also an SC70-5 part that looks like an output buffer.
This small piece of insulation was wrapped around one side of the crystal.
I cut the pins and flipped the board over.
This side is much more interesting!
The crystal is bonded to the ceramic heater board, and that seems to
be glued to the main board.
Now to put it back together. Hmm...
Thanks for reading!
