Vectron International Announces new mini OCXO

OCXO achieving ±20ppb stability in 9mm x 14mm footprint

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 its new OX–501 mini OCXO. The OX–501 is designed to support precision timing over packet based networks.

Today's system designers are faced with the ongoing challenge of supporting an IP network that is driven by IP cost models but requires high levels of timing accuracy. For the designer looking at a timing solution; this means providing a small form factor, cost effective high stability timing solution. It is this challenge that the OX–501 is designed to address.

"To date the only option was a TCXO or a lower performing TC–OCXO, forcing a tradeoff between price and performance." says Alan Mond, vice president and general manager of Vectron's communication business unit. "The OX–501 meets the performance goals set by the evolving timing architecture and fits within the footprint and price expectations set by small form factor IP centric solutions."

The OX–501 provides 20ppb temperature stability and excellent short term stability, all in an industry standard 9x14mm package.

Key Features
  • Temperature Stability of ±20ppb from –40° to 85°C
  • Available Output Frequencies of 10.0 MHz to 40.0 MHz.
  • Aging: 5 ppb/day
  • Supply Voltage: 3.3V
  • Output Configuration: HCMOS
  • Plastic Package: 9.5 mm x 14.4 mm x 6.2 mm
In addition to the OX–501, Vectron also offers customers a higher performance SC cut based platform in the OX–503 mini OCXO, along with innovative clock path technology including OCXOs TCXOs, XOs VCXOs, VCSOs and jitter attenuators that provide ultra low jitter timing solutions.

Vectron's OX–501 is available direct at www.vectron.com or through an authorized Vectron representative. For more information on this or any other Vectron products please contact a customer service representative at 1–88–VECTRON–1 or visit www.vectron.com.
