CTS Electronic’s New Model 520 Surface Mount!

CTS Electronic Components, INC. recently informed the public of their new Model 520!

This model is a quartz based, clipped sine output, surface mount temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO). This oscillator provides great performance and exists in a 2.5mm x 2.0mm surface mount package. These applications also include wireless communications, broadband access, test and measurement, WLAN/WiMAX/WIFI, equipment that is easily moved and mobile applications.

CTS Electronic Components, INC. Model 520 uses a compensation engine that is digital and able to maintain a steady frequency over commercial and industrial operating temperature ranges (maximum to -40 degrees C to +85 degrees Celsius), while also keeping great phase noise qualities.

Standard frequency stability is ±2.5 ppm. Frequencies are now available which include include 13MHz, 16.367667MHz, 16.368MHz, 16.369MHz, 19.2MHz, 20MHz, 26MHz, 38.4MHz and 40MHz. The Model 520 platform is also RoHS compliant (6/6) and is shipped in standard tape and reel packaging.

Features of the Model 520 include:

  • Clipped Since Wave Output
  • Optional Voltage Control for Frequency Tuning (VCTCXO)
  • 2.5mm x 2.0mm Surface Mount Package
  • Frequency Range 10-52 MHz
  • Fundamental Stability, several options to choose from +/- 0.5ppm ~ +/- 2.5ppm
  • Operating Voltage, +1.8Vdc ~ +2.5Vdc
  • Operating Temperature to -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius
  • Tape & Reel Packaging Available
  • RoHS/Green Compliant (6/6)
