Rakon Limited has developed a 5 × 3 mm crystal oscillator package suited to space constraints of wireless devices. This tiny SMD oscillator has an extended temperature range of -40 to 85°C and accepts voltage levels from 1.5 V to 5.5 V. This TCXO employs an analog IC for the oscillator and temperature compensation giving excellent temperature stability performance. Standard temperature stability starts from ± 1ppm over wide temperature ranges. The unit consumes 1.2 mA typically. This product offers flexible frequency ranges, reduces cost, increases circuit reliability and dramatically reduces board space. Applications for the device include GPS, Telematics, PDAs, PCMCIA, GSM/TDMA/ APMS cellular phones, and two-way pagers.
