Vectron International announced its new 508-series of small, low G-sensitivity clocks and oscillators. All 508 series products include a rugged 4-point mount crystal, ideal for low G-sensitivity military, industrial and other harsh environment applications. Each product in the new line achieves industry-leading noise performance in an extremely small 9x14 package, critical in supporting customer’s increased need for portability. This product was showcased in Hall B5, Booth 237 at electronica 2010, from November 9-12.

Just as the proliferation of mobile and handheld devices are driving consumers’ increased data usage, the military is also increasing its data consumption while requiring smaller, more portable equipment. Higher mobile data consumption escalates phase noise requirements and design engineers cannot afford to sacrifice performance or reliability for size. Vectron’s 508-series incorporates its leading low-jitter clocks into the industry’s smallest low G-sensitivity package.

“Our military and aerospace customers have been searching for a solution to their need for high-reliability, high performance clocks and oscillators in the small package required for portable applications,” said Greg Smolka, vice president, Industrial, Military and Space, Vectron International. “In addition, by building XO, VCXO and TCXO options into the same platform, the rigorous military qualification testing process can be simplified, leading to time and cost savings for our customers.”

The product line includes an XO, VCXO and TCXO, to meet the specific oscillator requirements of each design.
• PX-508, a low G-Sensitivity XO with a stability range of +/- 40 ppm [-55..+105°C] to +/- 15 ppm [-20..+70°C]
• VX-508, a low G-Sensitivity VCXO with a stability range of +/- 40 ppm [-55..+105°C] to +/- 15 ppm [-20..+70°C]
• TX-508, a low G-Sensitivity TCXO with a stability range of +/- 0.8 ppm [-40..+85°C] to +/- 0.28 ppm [-20..+70°C]
