Abracon ASGTX

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2014

A globally preferred, leading supplier of frequency control and magnetic components, Abracon Corporation introduces its new ASGTX series of factory configurable, high performance, fixed and voltage controlled crystal oscillators.

The ASGTX temperature compensated crystal oscillators are designed to accommodate a broad range of precision TCXO requirements without non-recurring engineering (NRE) and extended lead times. This oscillator series is designed and manufactured by Abracon Corporation and is available from 1pc to high volume production quantities.

For example, if a reference oscillator requirement calls for a 49.7521MHz and ±1.00 ppm TCXO/VCTCXO with LVCMOS output, the ASGTX can be configured and shipped within 1 to 5 days and, in most cases, on the same day, if the order is received before noon (CT). Customers with low-to-mid annual volume requirements typically find it difficult to procure custom frequency TCXO/VCTXCOs, like the ASGTX, without costly NRE charges and/or long lead times that can be greater than 12 weeks.

The ASGTX is available with either LVDS or LVPECL output from 10MHz to 1.50GHz, at any desired frequency, such as 149.875MHz, 1.00GHz, or 1.5GHz, with as tight as ±1.00 ppm stability over temperature. No other solution in the marketplace currently offers such capability, particularly in a small form-factor of 9.0x7.0x2.24mm.

The ASGTX is suitable for a wide variety of precision timing applications where TCXO/VCTXO’s are typically employed. In addition, for high frequency LO requirements, customers have traditionally relied upon SAW based oscillators. Such devices are only available at a few fixed frequencies, such as 915MHz and 1.0GHz, are typically in 9.0x14.0mm or larger packages, and vary as much as ±100 ppm over temperature.

Although the ASGTX series will be slightly less favorable in phase noise performance compared to SAW based oscillators, it offers the following key advantages:

  • A ±1.00 ppm stability over -30ºC to +70ºC and ±2.00 ppm stability over -40ºC to +85ºC.
  • Any carrier frequency between 10MHz and 1.50GHz.
  • A LVCMOS output of 10MHz to 250MHz or a LVDS/LVPECL output of 10MHz to 1.50GHz.
  • A small form-factor of 9.0x7.0x2.24mm.
  • No NRE or extended lead time.
  • A one to five day quick turnaround for small size orders.

The ASGTX series will be available through Abracon's Global Distribution partners by March 2014.
