TAITIEN Electronics, a leading provider of frequency control solutions, has introduced the small form factor temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO), the TY series, targeted for mobile applications such as smartphones, GPS navigation systems and handheld RF devices. As these mobile electronics become more prevalent and advanced, the performance requirements on components such as TCXOs used in these devices are getting more stringent at the same time. Leveraging TAITIEN’s long history of making high-performance TCXOs and expertise in end-to-end fabrication of high-precision quartz crystal oscillators, the new TY product line is capable of delivering frequency stability of +/- 0.5ppm over -30 to 85oC in a miniaturized 2.5×2.0mm SMD ceramic package.
With supply voltages ranging from 2.8V to 1.8V and typical current consumption as low as 1.1 mA, the TY series offer output frequencies up to 52 MHz in the low-power clipped sine wave output. To minimize battery drain on the devices, the TY series also have the option of the functionality of output enable/disable. The small form factor of 2.5×2.0mm provides more flexibility for hardware engineers in utilizing board space and product designs. Additionally, the new TY series can achieve the demanding timing specifications such as frequency and short-term stability with excellent phase noise performance required by GPS applications. These features make the TY TCXO optimal solution as reference clocks enabling handheld wireless communications where power consumption and product size are critical.
