Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXOs)
Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXOs) deliver the ultimate piezo electric performance with stabilities down to less than ±1ppb. An OCXO offers frequency stabilities even tighter than those offered by a TCXO. The frequency drift of the quartz crystal due to temperature shift is reduced by heating the crystal in an oven and so holding the temperature of the quartz at a fixed point. Traditionally this technology meant physically large devices with heavy power consumption however our latest models include some of the smallest OCXOs in the world. Our low phase noise OCXOs deliver exceptional phase noise performance down to -182dBc/Hz at 1MHz offset.
As a previous division of Rakon, IQD maintains a close partnership as a worldwide channel partner supplying Rakon’s wide range of high stability OCXOs. Rakon has extensive experience in creating standard and customised Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) solutions for the Telecommunications, Space and Defence markets.
IQD’s OCXO range includes frequencies up to 100MHz with a wide choice of package sizes, supply voltages and outputs available. We specialise in offering a customisation service to suit specific applications.
OCXO datasheets are available from the OCXO parametric search page.
