NORWALK, CONN. Vectron International has introduced a series of low-profile, surface-mount, oven-controlled crystal oscillators available in frequencies from 4.8 to 40 MHz.
The model CO-6000 provides low aging rates and temperature stabilities and is packaged as a surface-mount device measuring an inch x 0.9 inch x 0.42 inch.
The oscillators are said to offer an aging rate as low as 5 x 10-10/day with temperature stabilities as high as plus/minus 5 x 10-9 over 0 degrees C to 50 degrees C.
The units operate from a supply voltage of 3.3 Vdc or 5 Vdc at a stabilized power of 1 watt. Phase noise is -100 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz offset and -140 dBc/Hz at 50 Hz for AT cut crystals, and 120 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz offset and -145 dBc/Hz at 50 Hz for SC cut crystals.
Applications for the product are in telecommunications, data communications, frequency synthesizers, timing, navigation, telemetry and instrumentation systems. Pricing ranges from $95 to $170 per unit in 1,000-piece quantities, depending on stability and aging specification. Delivery takes 10 weeks.
