Vectron International Introduces World's Smallest VCXO

VC-800 Norwalk, CT... Vectron International (VI) has introduced a series of ultra miniature, surface mount, voltage controlled crystal oscillators (VCXOs).

The VC-800, voltage controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO), is a quartz stabilized square wave generator with a CMOS output and is tested at CMOS and TTL logic levels. The device is hermetically sealed in a 3.2 x 5.0 x 2 mm ceramic leadless chip carrier (LCC) with 6 contact pads. Selected frequencies between 1.544 MHz and 77.76 MHz are available with a 3.3 or 5.0 supply voltage. Phase jitter performance is better than <6 ps rms for frequencies greater than 12 MHz.

The VC-800’s ultra small size, standard package and high performance make it ideally suited for communication applications including xDSL Customer Premise Equipment (CPE), PCMCIA Cards, Handsets, Digital Video and ATM/SONET/SDH applications.

Pricing is dependent on specifications but is generally less than $6 in OEM quantities. Delivery is 6 to 8 weeks ARO.

Vectron International designs, manufactures and markets frequency generation and control products using the very latest techniques in both standard crystal and surface acoustic wave (SAW) based designs from DC to microwave frequencies. Products include crystals and crystal oscillators; SAW filters and components and clock and data recovery products used in telecommunication and data communication applications.
