OCXOs Offer Smaller Size, Lower Power and Faster Warm-Up Time

October 16, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Vectron’s new OX-502 and OX-601 Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXOs) claim a best-in-class combination of small size, low power consumption, fast warm-up time along with stability under airflow for use in your next-generation applications. These devices are based on proprietary ASIC development, thermal management and performance-proven crystal stability.

The OX-502 and OX-601 OCXOs are excellent options for communications (5G, IEEE 1588, SyncE, GR1244, base stations, small cell, microwave stability under airflow), data center, optical networking, military and other cost-sensitive and high-performance applications.
