MtronPTI Releases Low Phase Noise/Small Form Factor OCXO
September 21, 2005
Orlando, FL – September 21, 2005 – MtronPTI has released an improved low phase noise OCXO (Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator) as part of its XO5083 family, setting a new standard of performance in a small form factor OCXO. MtronPTI’s model XO5083-022 features phase noise performance of 165dBc/Hz at a 10 kHz offset. This product was designed for use in a VSAT (very small aperture terminal) system and is ideal for test/measurement applications and telecommunications based stations. Paul Dechen, Vice President of Business Development at MtronPTI, commented, “We saw a need at several of our customers for an extremely low phase noise oscillator that was compatible with the 1.0 x 1.0 inch footprint. Using our extensive background in developing low noise crystal and oscillator designs, we have developed a very robust, low phase noise product. This product will offer an important new design alternative to the designers that need to push to lower phase noise in timing circuits for a variety of applications.”
The XO5083-022 is a 10 MHz SC-cut based OCXO housed in a 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.5 inch, hermetically sealed enclosure. It matches the industry standard thru-hole and SMD footprints. The unit requires a +12 Volt supply with a sinewave output, has a frequency-temperature stability of ±10ppb over -40°C to +80°C and a yearly aging rate of less than ±0.1 ppm.
MtronPTI was formed in October 2004 with the merger of M-tron Industries Inc. and Piezo Technology Inc. of Orlando, Florida. MtronPTI is a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced technology frequency control products and electronic filter products. It is based in Yankton, South Dakota with design, sales and manufacturing locations in North America, Asia and Europe. MtronPTI is a subsidiary of the Lynch Corporation. Lynch is listed on the American Stock Exchange and traded under the symbol – LGL. View the MtronPTI website at www.mtronpti.com.
