Vectron International Announces Ultra Low Aging, 10 mm Profile SC-Cut OCXO

C4500A1-0115 Offers Lowest Profile Available without Loss of High-Performance for Extended System Design in Base Station and SDH / SONET applications

HUDSON, NH C4500Vectron International, a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of Frequency Control, Sensor, and Hybrid Product solutions, today announced the addition of a new 5 MHz low height, low aging, high stability SC-Cut oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO). Used in base station and SDH/SONET applications, the reduced size, improved reliability and extended life of Vectron's 10 mm C4500A1-0115 OCXO is designed for customers in the wireless and telecoms industries with stringent packaging density and high-performance requirements. The C4500A1-0115 OCXO is one-third lower in height than previous designs, which allows customers to leave room for new extended system designs and accommodating additional features in a standard 19 inch rack.

"As the wireless and telecoms industries see more and more growth from consumers looking for faster, more reliable access on the go, companies are looking for solutions that make room for extended features without sacrificing stability," said Alan Mond, Vice President of Global Sales, Vectron International. "These industries in particular evolve quickly, and Vectron works very closely with our customers to understand and meet their constantly changing needs."

In addition to the low height, the new product features:
  • 20 x 20 mm THT enclosures
  • Stability of better than ±8 ppb
  • 5 MHz
  • <50 ppb aging over 6 years
  • Advance adjustment technology and new crystal technology
  • No manual adjustment
  • Improved reliability
  • Typical phase noise of C4500A1-0115 @ 5MHz: -100dBc/Hz at 1Hz; -120dBc/Hz at 10Hz; -140dBc/Hz at 100Hz; -145dBc/Hz at 1kHz; and, -150dBc/Hz at 10kHz.
  • LVCMOS and sine wave output
