IQD’s launches new ±0.2ppb OCXO at IMS 2014
Posted: 4th June 2014
IQD’s new IQOV-164 series oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) delivers exceptional frequency stability performance at ±0.2ppb over an operating temperature range of -20 to 70 degrees C. This new ultra high stability model can also be specified to operate over a wider -30 to 75 degrees C temperature range with only a minor drop in temperature stability performance at ±0.5ppb.
Available over a frequency range from 10 to 40MHz, this OCXO consumes a maximum of 7.0 Watts during warm up time which takes only 3 minutes. Frequencies are available up to 100MHz with a lower stability of ±10ppb over -30 to 75 degrees C. Designed to operate from a 3.3V supply, the IQOV-164 is housed in an industry standard 5-pin euro package measuring 36 x 27mm and 13.5mm high.
Output can be specified as either HCMOS, 15pF load or Sinewave, into 50 Ohms load. Phase noise performance is typically -158dBc/Hz at 100kHz offset and the IQOV-164 can be specified with different frequency pulling options in order to offset the impact of ageing. Typically ageing is ±0.2ppb per day, ±10ppb per year depending on the required specification.
With the IQOV-164 offering such exceptional frequency temperature stability combined with a short term stability of 1E-11/S it is particularly suitable for a range of applications including: 4G and LTE base stations, test & measurement, GPS, radar, communications, point to point communications and Sonet/SDH.
This new series forms part of an extensive range of OCXO’s available from IQD, which include extremely low phase noise performance and ultra small packages.
