Ultra-miniature clock oscillator for industrial & automotive applications

IQD has launched a AEC-Q200 qualified ultra-miniature clock oscillator to TS16949 for industrial and automotive applications. The IQXO-540 AUTO series is housed in a 2.0 x 1.6 x 0.8mm ceramic sealed package with frequencies available in the range from 4.0 to 50MHz.

With stabilities down to ±25ppm over -40 to +85°C or ±50ppm over the extended temperature range of -40 to 125°C, these oscillators are suitable for extreme environments found in industrial and automotive applications including ABS, Airbag Sensors, Drive Controls, Keyless Entry, Navigation, Security Systems, Solar Panels, Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) receivers, Wi-Fi and WiMax.

Three voltages are available; the IQXO-540 AUTO operates at 3.3V; the IQXO-541 AUTO at 2.5V and the IQXO-542 AUTO at 1.8V and all variants deliver a CMOS output along with an enable/disable function. With a current consumption as low as 5mA and standby current of 10µA (-40 to 85°C ) these new models are also ideal for battery operated equipment.
