New 5.0 x 7.0 mm "true" Stratum 3 TCXO generation.
We are pleased to announce that Vectron International is ready for mass-market
sampling of the C2260 series of TCXOs for use in Telecom, Wireless and Data
Utilizing a new generation of TCXO ICs, the C2260 Series can stabilise the
frequency from 6.4 MHz up to 32 MHz over a wide temperature range of -30°C
to +85°C to better than 0.28 ppm. The parts are fully compliant to the
GR1244-Core and GR- 253-Core standard. As well as the superb temperature
stability and performance there are two enclosure technology advantages over
ceramic 5x7 parts.
- Expansion coefficient:
The C2260 is based on well proven FR4 enclosure technology and has the
same coefficient of expansion as the customer's PC board. Solder joints
fatigue failure will not occur anymore.
By using FR4 materials the design work is more flexible with the design of
the oscillator circuit and the realisation of all established pin-outs.
With the "wide pull version" of the C2260 family it is possible to
realize a pull range of +/- 40 ppm and more. As a result of the flexible
construction and the new IC technology, it is now possible to design-in 5x7
TCXOs with a better Phase-noise performance which in earlier days was only
possible with large, expensive, discrete solutions.
Because of highly automated modern manufacturing practice, the C2260 Series
combines excellent technical performance with a favourable price.
Samples of 12.8 MHz and 20 MHz for the two most important SONET/SDH IC solutions
from Semtech and Zarlink are available from stock.
Vectron International is a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing
of Frequency Control, Sensor, and Hybrid Product solutions using the very latest
techniques in both bulk acoustic wave (BAW) and surface acoustic wave (SAW) based
designs from DC to microwave frequencies. Products include crystals and crystal
oscillators; frequency translators; clock and data recovery products and SAW
filters and components used in telecommunications, data communications, frequency
synthesizers, timing, navigation, military/space and instrumentation systems.
