Abracon Introduces Precision Wide Operating Temperature TCXOs In 5.0x7.0mm Footprint

AST3TQ Series

Abracon Corporation introduces its AST3TQ series of precision Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillators.

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) - A globally preferred, leading supplier of frequency control and magnetic components, Abracon Corporation introduces its AST3TQ series of precision, -55ºC to +95ºC, Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillators.

“The AST3TQ series of Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillators is available from 10MHz to 40MHz carrier frequencies with LVCMOS output, offering ±500 ppb frequency stability over -55ºC to +95ºC,” explains Syed Raza, Director of Engineering at Abracon Corporation.

“These devices comply with Stratum-III stability of < ±4.60ppm all inclusive error over a 20-year product life. Temperature stability options include ±100ppb over -40ºC to +85ºC, ±280ppb over -50ºC to +90ºC and ±500ppb over -55ºC to +95ºC operating temperature ranges. With maximum current drain of 10mA @ 40MHz, these devices offer OCXO level accuracy over a wide operating temperature range, with minimal power consumption,” continues Raza.

Potential applications for these solutions include: COTS Military Radios & other Communication Hardware, WiMax, LTE, BTS, CATV, LAN, LMDS, GPS Tracking with hold-over accuracy, Test & Measurement Equipment, and Point-to-Point communication networks.

Key features include:
• Standard available frequencies: 10.00, 12.80, 19.20, 20.00, 25.00, 26.00, 30.72, 38.40 and 40.00MHz
• Standard LVCMOS output
• Frequency stabilities to include: ±100ppb over -40ºC to +85ºC, ±280ppb over –50ºC to +90ºC, and ±500ppb over -55ºC to +95ºC operating temperature ranges
• Excellent Phase Noise, Harmonics and Spurious content
• Typical RMS jitter of 400fs @ 40MHz carrier and 1.0ps @ 10MHz carrier over 12kHz to 20MHz BW

The AST3TQ series will be available through Abracon's Global Distribution partners by February 2014.
