11.20.12 -- OCXO Temperature Stability With TCXO Power Consumption
Lansdale Sole Source For Freescale MC13150 Wireless IC
Lansdale now has single-source rights to both globally market and continue to manufacture Freescale’s MC13150 IC. The MC13150 is a very-low power single conversion narrowband frequency modulated (FM) receiver incorporating a split intermediate frequency (IF). It contains a mixer, oscillator, extended range received signal strength indicator (RSSI), RSSI buffer, IF amplifier, limiting IF, a unique coilless quadrature detector and a device enabler function.

OCXO Temperature Stability With TCXO Power Consumption By Paul Kruczkowski, editor
Many remote and mobile platforms have limited power supplies, and thus require components designed with low power consumption in mind. This equipment often requires precise frequency control over its operating temperature, so one component that can significantly impact power consumption is the oscillator. I was recently introduced to a new oscillator technology that marries the low power draw of a TCXO with the frequency vs. temperature performance of an OCXO.

With the introduction of digital television, the need arose to re-think how to handle and transmit the large increase in data required with higher efficiency to more effectively use available bandwidth. Out of the many different architectures investigated, two main schemes emerged: COFDM (Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) and 8VSB (8-level, Vestigial Side Band). The COFDM system has been widely adopted in Europe while the 8VSB system is used in North America.
