Through years of development and optimisation of electronic circuitry and crystal design, Rakon offers a world leading range of OCXO products with unparalleled performance.
Rakon has a complete range of precision solutions from OCXOs capable of replacing expensive Rubidium clocks in SDH/SONET Stratum 2 applications through to low profile oven oscillator products. Rakon’s self calibrating OCXOs can maintain stabilities of better than ±16 ppb
(1.6 x 10-8) over the product’s entire life time and can achieve stabilities of less than 0.05 ppb (5 x 10-11) over temperature.
Rakon’s CFPODO series ‘super single oven’ OCXOs deliver performance as good or better than competing double oven OCXOs, but from a smaller low cost device. The CFPODO offers stability of ±0.1 ppb (±1.0 x 10-10) over its operating temperature range, while its superior stability under all operating conditions yields 24 hour holdover better than 7µs. It is suitable as a frequency source and time keeping reference for all synchronization systems. A self calibrating version is available.
Other OCXO products include high precision, low phase noise and low profile ovens. Rakon specialises in delivering customised solutions to suit a wide variety of applications including network timing & synchronisation, base stations, telecoms infrastructure commercial, industrial , military and space qualified requirements.
Rakon specialises in the design and manufacture of very high performance SAW filters, specifically for the space, defence and other high reliability markets.
Quartz Crystal Overview
Quartz Crystal Selection
Rakon has over 40 years experience in crystal design and today manufactures a range of AT, Y and SC cut crystals in a variety of industry standard and ultra miniature SMD package sizes. Rakon’s patented HiG™ crystals can withstand shocks of greater than 20,000G and are extremely resistant to frequency noise induced by vibration.
A range of solutions are available with frequencies up to 1500MHz with CMOS, LVPECL or LVDS outputs.
Rakon has expertise in high performance, low jitter, low phase noise VCXOs for demanding applications, including telecommunications and test and measurement.
Rakon also offer commercial products such as a 27 MHz VCXO in 5.0 x 3.2 and 7.0 x 5.0 mm packages for video applications.
