MX-041 Offers Improved Performance and Reduced Power over Conventional Double Ovens

Tue, 06/01/2010 - 11:39am
Vectron International introduces a “Super Single” oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO), the MX-041 for base station and test & measurement applications. Design engineers are facing ever-increasing competition and are under pressure to continually add new services and functionality, maximize performance and lower power consumption. The MX-041 represents the first in a series of “Super Single” OCXO products based on Vectron’s patented microprocessor correction technology to address these requirements.

The Vectron single oven technology is able to achieve a temperature stability of plus/minus 0.6ppb over -40°C to +85°C while reducing power consumption by more than 55% during warm up and 50% during steady state.

The MX-041 is housed in a low profile package at a height of 14.55 mm, versus 25.4 mm for typical double ovens. The reduced package height enables customers to meet tight height requirements without sacrificing electrical performance. The innovative construction used in the “Super Single” produces excellent short and long-term stability with ADEV performance of 3e-12 @ 1 second along with long term aging of 10 ppb per year.
