Pericom Semiconductor has recently announced the availability of its latest family of temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXO). Included in the company's latest line of TCXOs are added Voltage Controlled options (VCTCXO) which aim to deliver excellent performance, small size, low power to mobility platforms such as smartphones, GPS, wireless modules, and portable industrial and medical equipment, as well as traditional telecommunications and automotive applications.

Pericom's latest offering boasts excellent frequency stability from ±0.5-5.0ppm over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. Typical support frequency ranges from a few MHz to a maximum 40MHz to cover almost all application needs. Supply voltage options cover 1.8V to 3.3V. The new product family includes many frequency options available in both TCXO and VCTCXO (Voltage Controlled Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator) options in which the VCTCXO option is voltage-controlled from an external processor.

Targeting space critical mobile platforms, the TCXO/VCTCXO family supports both standard 3225 (3.2x2.5mm) and 2520 (2.5x2.0mm) small package sizes. Samples and volume production of TCXO and VCTCXO are available now for customer projects with the following 4 major product families:

  • WT325– TCXO with 3225 package size
  • WC325– VCTCXO with 3225 package size
  • WT255– TCXO with 2520 package size
  • WC255– VCTCXO with 2520 package size
  • Pricing ranges from $0.80 to $1.50 @ 10K unit quantities.
