GHz Crystal Oscillators

A globally preferred supply leader of frequency control and magnetic components, Abracon Corporation introduces its ASG series of High Frequency - Precision Crystal Oscillators and VCXOs.
“The trend towards shorter lead times and suppliers’ ability to offer low jitter - fixed or voltage controllable oscillators at high carrier frequencies, offering LVCMOS or Differential Output, is driving the need for products such as Abracon’s ASG series, “ explains Syed Raza, director of engineering for Abracon Corporation.

Its Advanced Engineering Team has launched a factory configurable surface mount oscillator capable of outputting any desired frequency between 10MHz and 1.5GHz in a 5.0 x 7.0 x 1.9 mm Ceramic SMT Package that is currently available and in stock. Packages with 5.0 x 3.2 mm and 2.5 X 2.0 mm will be available this December.

The ASG series is designed to offer exceptional, all-inclusive frequency stability of < ±50 ppm (tolerance, stability over temperature and aging) over a 10-year product life.  Utilizing innovative architecture, this solution features exceptional Phase Noise characteristics at high carrier frequencies.
Standard applications of the ASG series include: Networking, SONET / SDH, WiMax / WLAN, Computing, PLLs, DDSs, DSL / ADSL, BTS and General Timing Applications requiring a high frequency, low noise, low cost, small profile SMT solution.

Key features of the ASG series of Crystal Oscillators and Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillators include:
  •     LVCMOS, LVDS or LVPECL output option
  •     +2.5V or +3.3V operation
  •     Typical rms jitter of < 1ps @ 1GHz carrier over 12kHz to 20MHz BW
  •     -40ºC to +85ºC standard operating temperature range
  •     Space saving, 5.0 x 7.0 x 1.9 mm Ceramic SMT Package
  •     Lead time of one to five business days for small quantities.  The unique Integrated Circuitry of the ASG solution provides factory configurability, allowing extremely short lead times
The ASG series is currently in stock at Abracon's Global Distribution partner’s Avnet, Digi-Key, and Mouser Electronics at a competitive distribution cost of  <$17 @ 1GHz carrier and <$9 @ 156.25MHz carrier for quantities of 2,000. Both offer LVPECL output and are configured as a VCXO.  Pricing is based on carrier frequency, XO versus VCXO and output selection.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications.
