Vectron International Announces J-lead Packages for Range of Crystal Oscillators and Translators

New J-lead Surface Mount Option Provides More Resilient Circuit Board Connections for Military Applications

BOSTON, MA Vectron International, a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of Frequency Control, Sensor, and Hybrid Product solutions, today announced from the 2009 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium that its ceramic 5x7 mm crystal oscillators and translators are now available in J-leaded packages. The J-lead packaging provides defense customers with products that are able to withstand a wide range of temperatures and environments necessary for military electronics applications. The company will showcase these new products in Booth 807 at the 2009 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium, to be held June 9-11, 2009 in Boston, Mass.

Military customers require this surface mount option to enable more resilient connections, thus reducing solder fatigue between the ceramic package and the circuit boards in the demanding environmental conditions in which these components must operate flawlessly. By offering a J-leaded package that is 3.6 times smaller in surface area than a 9x14 mm package, Vectron's new products will help military customers reduce the size of their products without compromising reliability in their system due to temperature coefficient mismatches.

"Our defense customers face engineering challenges in extremely harsh environments, such as rapid temperature changes in avionic and missile applications," said Dave Bail, director of product marketing, Industrial, Military and Space Business Unit, Vectron International. "At Vectron, we pride ourselves on listening carefully to our customers' evolving needs and innovating to provide them with the products they require to meet their objectives without compromising on size or quality."

Products currently available in J-leaded packages include the ceramic 5x7 mm crystal oscillators PX-700 and VX-705, and translators FX-700 and CD-700. For more information on the new J-lead packages or other Vectron products, please contact a customer service representative at 1-88-VECTRON-1 .
