Variable supply voltage oscillator to handle battery discharges

The latest standard packaged clock oscillator series, the IQXO 951, has been introduced by IQD Frequency Products, part of the Würth Elektronik eiSos group.

The IQXO 951 operates with a supply voltage range from 1.6 to 3.3V for industrial and consumer applications which require batteries as a power source and which need to handle a change in voltage as the battery discharges. A discharging battery may cause a decrease in the source voltage, which consequently changes the frequency of the oscillator and the timing accuracy within the application will decline.

The IQXO-951 is available in industry standard packages measuring 3.2 x 2.5mm, 2.5 x 2.0mm and 2.0 x 1.6mm. It will allow electronic equipment manufacturers to benefit from standard stability of ± 25 ppm over the industrial temperature range from -40 to +85 degrees C. Parts are also available with extended temperature range up to -40 to +125 degrees C.

The clock oscillators are suitable for most applications that are designed for battery-powered products. Customers could reduce the bill of materials (BoM) by using a single part instead of multiple oscillators with fixed supply voltages.

The oscillators target telecommunications, IoT, communication and medical markets.

IQD has over 40 years’ experience in the manufacture of frequency products. It is part of the Würth Elektronik eiSos group, a leading European manufacturer of passive components.

IQD has active customers in over 80 countries and offers a comprehensive range of frequency products, from low cost commercial grade product to those used in high reliability industrial and automotive applications, including quartz crystals, clock oscillators, AEC-Q200-certified crystals and oscillators, VCXOs, TCXOs, OCVCSOs and OCXOs, GPS disciplined OCXOs and rubidium oscillators.

Würth Elektronik eiSos Group is a manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components for the electronics industry and a technology company. It has production sites in Europe, Asia and North America.

Its range includes EMC components, inductors, transformers, RF components, varistors, capacitors, resistors, quartz crystals, oscillators, power modules, wireless power transfer, LEDs, sensors, connectors, power supply elements, switches, push-buttons, connection technology, fuse holders and solutions for wireless data transmission.
