Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator incorporates GPS receiver.

Press Release Summary:




Housed in 14-pin 60 mm² package, IQCM-110 Series incorporates internal GPS receiver with 1 PPS output. When coupled to external aerial via SMA connector, in event of loss of GPS signal, 10 MHz OCXO will switch-in with holdover capability of 1.5 µs for 24-hour period, maintaining lock until restoration of reference signal. Internal alarm indicates lock failure and subsequent restoration of signal. Operating from -20 to +75°C with 5 V power supply, oscillator delivers standard HCMOS output.



Original Press Release:



Electronica Launch for IQD's New GPS Disciplined OCXO



IQD’s newest addition to its range of advanced oscillator modules is its IQCM-110 series of GPS disciplined OCXOs. Being unveiled at Electronica 2014, the new design incorporates an internal GPS receiver with a 1PPS output and is housed in a 14-pin 60mm square package. When coupled to an external aerial via the incorporated SMA connector, in the event of the loss of the GPS signal the highly specified 10MHz OCXO will switch-in with a holdover capability of 1.5 µSeconds for a 24-hour period thereby maintaining lock until restoration of the reference signal.



The standard operating temperature range of the module is -20 to 75 degrees C but other temperature ranges and holdover specifications can be considered upon request. The required power supply is 5V with the output being standard HCMOS. Current consumption is 2A maximum during warm-up with this reducing to 1A once the steady-state condition is reached.



The design incorporates an internal adaptive algorithm which enables the module to ‘learn’ the parameters of the GPS signal after a period of 2 days of lock so that the holdover function can start in the event of signal failure. An internal alarm is built-in to indicate lock failure and subsequent restoration of signal. In addition, the unit incorporates a serial connection for more detailed interrogation of the device’s performance.



Intended for a range of applications including land based telecommunications systems as well as marine based navigation systems the IQCM-110 forms part of a range of highly specified modules and Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators available from IQD.



Full details will be available at IQD’s stand 314 in Hall B5 at Electronica 2014.
