Orlando, Fla. – MtronPTI has launched a family of high stability, ultra-miniature TCXOs in package sizes as small as 2.5 x 2.0 mm, which is an area reduction of 7X compared to standard 5- x 7-mm packages. The M6053/4, M6055/6 and M6064/5 TCXOs offer frequency stability down to ±0.2 ppm for wireless communications applications.
The M6053, M6055 and M6064 TCXOs and companion M6054, M6056 and M6065 VCTCXOs are available in frequency ranges of 10 to 52 MHz, with an operating temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C operating range. They are available in 5.0- x 3.2- mm, 3.2- x 2.5-mm, and 2.5-x 2.0-mm packages.
"Most telecom applications today need tight initial frequency tolerance and low drift but increasingly small package size is important, especially in portable applications," said Mel Mehret, MtronPTI lead wireless communications applications engineer, in a statement.
"Wireless access point makers look for low phase noise to increase bandwidth with a low bit error rate," added Mehret. "Tight frequency stability is wanted since often the ambient temperature is uncontrolled (think an outdoor stadium or street pole). And they’d like that performance in a smaller size to help drive overall unit costs down. The smaller package sizes of our new TCXO families fit the bill perfectly.”
The RoHS compliant TCXO VCTCXO products are used in avionic flight control, point-to-point radio, broadband access base stations and professional wireless sound systems.
