Vectron International Announces Stratum 3 Compliance for VT-803 TCXO

Small form factor TCXO supporting timing and synchronization applications

Hudson, NH – Vectron International, a leader in the design and manufacture of Precision Oscillators and Timing Solutions for Communication, Industrial, Military & Space applications, today announced that the VT–803 TCXO is Stratum 3 compliant, supporting timing and synchronization applications throughout the network.

"Methods for delivering timing and synchronization continue to evolve" said Mario Saucedo, General Manager of Standard Oscillator Group at Vectron International. "However, the system level performance requirements such as wander generation remain the same and the VT–803 complies with the Stratum 3 specifications in a 5 mm x 3.2 mm footprint". As synchronization technology and standards continue to evolve, Stratum 3 requirements continue to remain as the baseline of performance.

Synchronization solutions are usually assembled from different components. A designer must know that the assembled components will combine into a solution that meets the system level requirements. When tasked with creating a synchronization solution it is necessary to choose a TCXO that will provide a stable foundation for the timing application. Vectron simplifies this step by evaluating how the oscillator behaves with the timing components.
