TCXOs Come In Small Form Factor for GPS Applications
Mon, 01/09/2012 - 1:04pm
Fox Electronics released a new TCXO in a compact 2.5 mm x 2.0 mm x 1.0 mm package making them appropriate for GPS applications. The new FOX922-GP Series oscillators are available in six supply voltage options ranging from 1.8 V to 3.3 V (±5 percent standard) for increased adaptability to any platform. Offering a tight stability of up to ±0.5 ppm across an operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C, the RoHS-complaint SMD (surface mount device) oscillators with a gold termination finish are best suited for portable applications requiring precision timing. Standard frequencies for the new TCXO oscillators range from 16.367667 MHz to 38.400 MHz with ten varieties offered. Available with a clipped sine output waveform, the peak-to-peak voltage level is 0.8 V minimum; phase noise at 16.369 MHz with 10 kHz offset is typically -147 dBc/Hz; and output load is (10 kOhms/10 pF)±10 percent. Frequency stability over the supply voltage change is ±0.2 ppm and over the load change is ±0.2 ppm.
