ASIC Based OCXO Platform meets Stratum 3E Frequency Accuracy

RFMW announces design and sales support for Rakon’s ASIC based oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) platform. Rakon’s Mercury/+™ OCXO platform meets frequency accuracy requirements up to Stratum 3E level (10 ppb pk-pk). With fundamental frequencies ranging from 5 to 100 MHz, this ASIC’s flexibility allows alternative circuit configurations to address customer requirements for base stations, carrier ethernet equipment, small cells, packet networks, and other synchronization deployments. For example, the U7565LF is a 10 MHz fundamental OCXO with +/- 10 ppb stability and CMOS output suiting the requirements of urban and enterprise Small Cells. Mercury/+™ ICs include the smallest OCXO available at 9.7 x 7.5 mm with enhanced reliability, fast warm up times, very low power consumption, miniature size, and feature ultra-low phase noise with excellent short and medium term stability performance.
