HUDSON, USA: Vectron International, a leader in the design and manufacture of precision oscillators for Communication, Industrial, Military and Space applications, announced its new solution for the timing of ultra high-temperature electronics, the PX-570 crystal oscillator.
Able to withstand continuous operating temperatures of up to 230 degrees Celsius, this product is ideal for harsh environment applications, including oil and gas downhole operations. In addition to extreme temperature operation, the PX-570’s unique compliant quartz resonator mounting and 6-leaded HTCC package creates a ruggedized design capable of reliable operation in high shock and vibration environments.
With the PX-570, Vectron successfully combines its unique compliant quartz resonator mounting techniques with a 6-leaded HTCC package, creating a design with the highest package to board attachment fatigue resistance that is capable of surviving shock levels of 1000 g’s. In addition, the PX-570 has the industry’s tightest frequency vs. temperature performance of ±100ppm from -55ºC to +230ºC.
“In the high-temperature electronics community, not only are operating temperatures and lifetime requirements increasing, parts are often subject to very harsh shock and vibration,” says Gregory Smolka, Vice President of the IMS Business Unit at Vectron. “Throughout our ten-year history in high-temperature electronics, our products have delivered exceptional lifetime increases over comparable hi temp designs. The PX-570 builds on this legacy, offering designers unprecedented reliability and frequency stability in some of the harshest environments on the planet.”
Specific features of the PX-570 include:
* Ultra high and wide continuous operating temperature (-55 to 230 degrees C).
* Unique compliant quartz resonator mounting for high shock & vibration applications.
* High package to board attachment fatigue resistance with 6-leaded HTCC package design.
* +/- 100ppm frequency stability over the operating temperature range.
* Standard frequency range from 32 kHz to 40 MHz.
