Fort Myers, Fla. Fox Electronics developed a HCMOS, 14-pin DIP oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) designed for use in base stations. The OCXO meets the IEEE 802.16-2004 specification that dictates the OCXO have a frequency stability better than 8 ppm for 10 years. In addition, it has phase noise of -125 dBc/Hz at an offset of 100 Hz and of -145 dBc/Hz at an offset of 10 kHz.
The operating temperature for the FTS310 is -40°C to 65°C, with an option of -40°C to 85°C for use in outdoor units or locations requiring tolerance to higher temperatures. The OCXO has a frequency range of 2.43 MHz to 60.00 MHz, warms up to ±4.6 ppm in two minutes and needs less than 1.5 watts of power to do so. Its supply voltage is 3.30 V ±0.16 V, its operating power is 1.0 watts at 0°C and 0.6 watts at 25°C and its output load is 15 pF. The OCXO measures 20.8 x 13.2 x 11.0-mm.
