KYOCERA AVX releases first oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) products

Posted Date: 2023-07-15

July 14, 2023 /SemiMedia/ — KYOCERA AVX not too long ago launched its first oven-controlled oscillator (OCXO) product. The brand new excessive efficiency OCXO merchandise are the newest additions to the corporate’s line of frequency management options and are manufactured within the USA.

OCXOs are temperature-controlled gadgets that keep a quartz crystal’s fixed working temperature with the intention to stop modifications within the specified frequency that might in any other case outcome from variations in ambient temperature. They're broadly utilized in purposes together with community infrastructure, backhaul communications, take a look at and measurement methods, industrial tools, medical tools, corresponding to MRIs, navy tools, aerospace tools, corresponding to satcom up and down converters and navy and business drones, oil and gasoline sensors, precision timing and clock sources, and GPS precision timing gadgets.

KYOCERA AVX’s new KOV Sequence commonplace voltage-controlled OCXOs and KLN Sequence low-noise voltage-controlled OCXOs make use of fashionable structure topologies and strong designs that ship glorious efficiency in these and different purposes and permit prospects to attain a brilliant secure frequency within the type of a sinewave or a brilliant secure timing supply within the type of a CMOS clock output. KOV and KLN Sequence OCXOs exhibit excessive stability over a variety of working temperatures (10–50MHz ±5ppb and 50–120MHz ±10ppb from -40°C to +85°C), low jitter, which ends up in superior stability and permits prospects to make use of them as the first frequency supply of their RF chain, and low part noise and distinctive ageing traits, with little or no frequency deviation over greater than 20 years of steady operation. They're accessible in a number of through-hole and surface-mount package deal sizes and with two output varieties: sine and complementary metallic oxide Semiconductor Transistor transistor logic (CMOS/TTL). Each sequence are additionally REACH and RoHS compliant, and a number of other variants are compliant with Export Administration Regulation 99 (EAR99) and ITAR/EAR 3A001.b.10.

KOV Sequence commonplace voltage-controlled OCXOs supply a large frequency vary, extending from 10–120MHz, have a fast warm-up time, and exhibit low part noise (e.g., 120dBc/Hz at 10Hz offset and -145dBc/Hz at 1kHz offset, each with a 10MHz heart frequency). They're at the moment accessible in 5 surface-mount package deal sizes (9×14, 14-pin DIP, 20×20, 22×25, and 25x25mm) rated for 3.3V or 5V provide voltages and are perfect for use in 5G picocell purposes along with the aforementioned purposes. Delivery choices embody tape and reel and bulk packaging.

KLN Sequence low-noise voltage-controlled OCXOs supply a large frequency vary, extending from 10–150MHz, tolerate micro vibrations, and exhibit glorious low-g acceleration sensitivity (<0.3ppb/G on the worst axis), superior frequency stability, and three completely different ranges of low- to ultra-low part noise (e.g., 130dBc/Hz at 10Hz offset and -166dBc/Hz offset for “A” degree part noise with a 10MHz heart frequency). They're accessible in three surface-mount package deal sizes (14-pin DIP, 20×20, and 25x25mm) rated for 5V or 12V provide voltages and shipped in bulk packaging. As well as the aforementioned purposes, they're additionally splendid for high-performance navy tools, corresponding to missile and radar methods, autonomous automobiles, and phase-locked microwave purposes.

“The brand new KYOCERA AVX OCXOs are primarily based on our confirmed know-how and backed by our high-performance heritage within the frequency management options business, and so they complement the strong KYOCERA Company crystal product line produced in Japan,” mentioned Kio Ariumi, Senior Vice President, KYOCERA AVX. “Though OCXOs are broadly accessible in at this time’s market, they’re sometimes produced by crystal-exclusive corporations. KYOCERA AVX, however, affords a variety of complementary product strains, together with MLCCs, tantalum/polymer Capacitors, antennas, connectors, and sensors, that present added worth for OCXO prospects.”

Lead time for the sequence is at the moment 12–14 weeks.
