Tiny Surface-Mount Crystal Oscillators from Focus EDL
Focus EDL has announced the availability of a series of ultra small surface mount crystal oscillators with dimensions of just 2.0 x 1.6 x 0.5mm. According to Focus EDL’s Managing Director Geoff Philpot, their tiny size makes the new crystal oscillators ideal for applications where component density on the board can be a prime consideration. These include WLAN Chipsets, Bluetooth, USB, GPS, and Camera Phone Modules.
Silicon Labs Replaces Crystal Oscillators With 100 Percent Silicon Oscillator
Silicon Laboratories has announced its entry into the consumer timing market with the introduction of what it says is the industry’s highest stability 100 percent CMOS oscillator, offering a replacement for crystal oscillators (XOs) with shorter lead times, lower cost, higher reliability and higher performance. The new Si500 family has the widest frequency range, widest selection of differential and single-ended clock formats, low total power c...
Quartz crystals for ZigBee wireless ICs from PETERMANN-TECHNIK
The Quartz Crystals for Wireless Applications product range from PETERMANN-TECHNIK contains MINI SMD quartz crystals specially designed for ZigBee. The cost-effective SMD quartz crystal from the SMD03025 series is mainly used in the 3.2 x 2.5mm 4pad ceramic casing. This low cost / high performance SMD quartz crystal can be supplied in the basic sound range of 12-40 MHz (16 MHz is standard for ZigBee) and comes with frequency tolerances of +-8 ppm...
Low cost/high performance quartz crystals for MELEXIS wireless ICs
The Quartz Crystals for Wireless Applications product range from PETERMANN-TECHNIK contains quartz crystals specially designed for Melexis Wireless ICs (RFIC and RFID). The cost-effective SMD quartz crystal from the HC-49/US-SMD series is mainly used, which can also be supplied with three solder pads (central pin for earthing). By using the 3-pin quartz crystal version, the quartz crystal's EMC performance can be significantly improved. Frequency...

Crystal oscillator from Link Microtek
Link Microtek has expanded its range of MtronPTI frequency control products with the addition of the XO5120 series oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO), which delivers high stability and excellent phase noise performance over a wide range of operating temperatures. The new device achieves a stability of +/-2ppb over commercial temperatures and +/-3ppb over industrial temperatures, while phase noise is specified as -155dBc/Hz for a 10kHz offs...
Focus EDL adds Raltron's frequency control devices
Focus EDL has announced that it has added leading frequency management specialist Raltron to its franchise line-up. Established 25 years ago, Raltron is recognised as an industry leader in crystal and oscillator technology producing a very broad range of frequency control products from simple tuning fork crystals up to high stability oven controlled crystal oscillators.
1.5 to 3.8 GHz Active Upconverting Mixer from Linear Technology
A high dynamic range active upconverting mixer from Linear Technology replaces the best of today’s passive mixers. The LT5579’s wide frequency range of 1.5GHz to 3.8GHz covers the 1.9GHz cellular bands as well as the 2.6GHz and 3.5GHz WiMAX frequency bands. At 2.14GHz, the device offers 27.3dBm Output IP3 linearity and 9.9dB Noise Figure to deliver outstanding transmitter dynamic range. Moreover, the mixer has 2.6dB of conversion gain, the hi...
Temperature-compensated crystal oscillators are down in size but not in performance
Just announced by Vectron International is a temperature-compensated crystal oscillator in a package just half the size of its predecessor. The VTM3 TCXO offers equivalent phase noise performance to the proven VTC4 and VTC1 TCXOs but in a smaller package measuring just 3.2mm x 2.5mm.
