Low voltage CMOS clock oscillators meet battery life demands

IQD has launched a range of low voltage complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) -based clock oscillators available at 0.9, 1.2 and 1.5V. The IXO-691 series oscillators are suitable for use in designs where improved battery life is critical including body cameras for security services, digital cameras, personal navigation devices (PND), portable audio players, portable test equipment, universal serial bus (USB) interface, wide local area network (WLAN) and wearable devices.

The IQXO-691 series oscillators are available with a frequency stability of either ±20ppm over an operating temperature range of -20 to 70 degrees C or ±25ppm over -40 to 85 degrees C.

Housed in hermetically sealed ceramic packages, the oscillators are available in four sizes, 2.5 x 2.0mm, 3.2 x 2.5mm, 5.0 x 3.2mm and 7.0 x 5.0mm. Frequencies can be specified in the range 10 to 50MHz and offer a start-up time of 10ms and a rise and fall time of 7ns. All variants include a tri-state function on pin one as standard. Packaging options are either tape and reel or cut tape.

A range of standard specifications are available from stock immediately either direct from IQD or via its worldwide network of distributors.

IQD has over 40 years’ experience in the manufacture of frequency products. The company has active customers in over 60 countries, and believes it offers one of the most comprehensive frequency product ranges available, from low cost commercial grade product to that used in high reliability industrial, automotive and military grade applications including quartz crystals, clock oscillators, AEC-Q200/TS16949 crystals and oscillators, voltage controlled crystal oscillators (VCXOs), temperature controlled crystal oscillators (TCXOs), oven controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs), global positioning systems (GPS) disciplined OCXOs, and rubidium oscillators.

Manufacturing capacity totals over 40 million units each month covering quantities from one off specials to multi-million unit orders. IQD offers customers a range of engineering support services including application support, custom product design, sample development, electrical testing and screening, frequency/temperature testing, accelerated ageing, circuit characterisation and MTIE/TDEV testing. IQD’s products are specified by leading manufacturers in the aerospace, automotive, communications, computing, consumer, industrial, medical and military industries throughout the world.
