Rakon Introduces RTX-A TCXOs

Rakon RTX7050A TCXO

Rakon Ltd. has launched two new fully integrated temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) in its RTX-A series, designed for use in precision GNSS receivers and wireless communication devices and base stations, such as LTE femtocells, IP timing, and WiFi/WiMax.

The RTX7050A and RTX5032A (5 x 3.2 millimeters) employ an analog IC for both the oscillator and temperature compensation.

The RTX7050A and RTX5032A (5 x 3.2 millimeters) employ an analog IC for both the oscillator and temperature compensation.

According to the New Zealand–based company, both products offer typical phase noise of –154dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset for a 50 MHz TCXO and similar performance for other specifications. Frequencies are available from 5 to 52 MHz.  With frequency stability down to ±0.1 ppm, the RTX-A series is available over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

The company also will be releasing a surface mount device (SMD) TCXO for GPS mobile applications, the I(V)T2100F. The device can be placed in power down mode through a single input pin. During standard operation, power consumption is minimized by operating down to a supply voltage of 1.8V. A preliminary spec sheet is available.
