Q-Tech releases the industry’s smallest crystal oscillators for New Space applications
Available from APC Hi-Rel and designed to target satellite and space applications, the surface-mount packages offer peak performance for demanding low-earth orbit deployment in the industry’s smallest footprint.
The QT723 and QT735 series of space-qualified crystal oscillators allow designers exceptional performance in the industry’s smallest surface-mount package. These New Space, Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) oscillators are 50kRad(Si) total dose ionization radiation hardened, high shock (20,000 g) resistant and screened per MIL-PRF-55310, Level B with PIND.
The 2.5 x 3.2 mm QT723 series offers models with user-prescribed 1.500 to 250 MHz, tri-state CMOS outputs powered by an input voltage of 1.8, 2.5 or 3.3 Vdc.
The QT735 series, in a slightly larger (3.2 x 5.0 mm) package, is offered in CMOS, LVDS and LVPECL versions with input voltages up to 5.0 Vdc and selectable frequencies from 1.000 to 250 MHz.
