Rakon Celebrates 50 Year History in Hi-tech Industry
5 April 2017
It was the era of black and white television, The Beatles, and the space race between the US and Russia to the moon. It was the 1960s and on the other side of the world, in his garage in little New Zealand, a man was making crystals to generate radio frequency. That man was Warren Robinson, founder of Rakon. Back then, Warren saw a large gap in the market for crystals and so he decided to make his own. The company became incorporated on 4 April 1967.
Rakon Introduces High Frequency Ultra Stable TCXOs for Low Jitter and Phase Noise Applications
20 March 2017
Rakon announces the release of its new RHT1490 product series of high frequency and low jitter ultra-stable TCXOs that are available in frequencies from 50 MHz to 204.8 MHz. The RHT1490 delivers world class telecommunications grade stability with a low RMS phase jitter of <200 fs (12 kHz – 20 MHz).
This product platform’s frequency output enables lower system jitter, allowing communication system architects to optimise noise budget and performance.
Rakon Has Released a New Application Note for Network Synchronisation Timing Requirements
The Application Note outlines synchronisation performance and temperature profile options of quartz crystal based oscillator timing sources for network synchronisation – to satisfy the requirements for stable clocks.
Network equipment of different deployment scenarios such as macro basestations and small cells, or outdoor housed equipment vs indoor equipment, may have the same performance expectations – but different cost targets. Specifically for synchronisation, oscillator performance is key, and very much dependant on the ambient temperature changes. This paper discusses practical temperature profiles, which may be considered for synchronisation performance testing, based on oscillator performances at various cost levels. Synchronisation testing in practical, realistic conditions saves considerable equipment cost by including the right components from the outset.
