Rakon on board comet-chaser
January 2014: The spacecraft Rosetta, due to reach the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko this year, uses several frequency control components from Rakon.
Rakon crystal oscillators and crystal filters, are used in the COmet Nucleus Sounding Experiment by Radiowave Transmission (CONSERT), which is designed to probe the interior of the comet by using radio waves transmitted through the nucleus between the Philae lander and Rosetta orbiter.
Rakon launches Low Voltage (1.2V) Miniature TCXO
Sept 2013: Rakon pioneered the world’s first 0.5ppm TCXO for GPS applications and is proud to announce the extension of our product offering to include the RIT2016C model TCXO.
The RIT2016C minimizes power consumption in portable devices to extend the battery life while still delivering the performance advantage that Rakon’s customers have come to expect.
Timing is Everything: Navigating important timing component choices for small cell designers
Sept 2013: The small cell industry now addresses a much greater scope than just the initial residential femtocell. This has implications on one critical and potentially costly component which every small cell must have – a timing oscillator. The low cost residential femtocell oscillators aren't suitable for all applications; so what are today's choices available to small cell designers and what factors determine component selection?
The Duke of Kent visits Rakon UK
HRH the Duke of Kent made a visit to a successful Lincoln engineering firm on Wednesday, September 4 to see its specialist work.
The Duke of Kent stopped at Rakon UK, known internationally for its ultra-stable crystal oscillators work, to meet the 90 staff and learn more about its products and technologies.
