A miniature, low-cost, lead-free TCVCXO (temperature compensated, voltage controlled crystal oscillator) range offering frequency stability of ±0.5 parts per million over the "40° to +85°C temperature range has been introduced by C-MAC MicroTechnology . Packaged as a standard 7 x 5 mm SMD, the CFPT-126 is available in a range of frequencies between 10 and 40 MHz for use in GPS, communications, networking and instrumentation applications. To help equipment manufacturers to comply with new environmental obligations, the CPFT-126 is designed for lead free soldering and compliant with all requirements of the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment) regulations. With a 3.3 V supply voltage and HCMOS output at nominal frequencies of 10.0, 12.8, 13.0, 16.384, 19.44, 20.0, 26.0, 32.768 and 40.0 MHz, the CFPT-126 is applicable to a range of applications including telecommunications, microwave and satellite communication systems, GPS, Ethernet products, and test and measurement equipment. Its output frequency can be adjusted by more than ±5 ppm through voltage control to calibrate it to nominal after assembly. The CFPT-126 is supplied on standard tape and reel and supports lead-free reflow soldering at 260°C. Storage temperature range is "55° to +125°C, and typical ageing over the first year is 1 ppm at 25°C. Components are held in stock for fast delivery.
