CTS Corporation, through its subsidiary, CTS Electronic Components, Inc., announces its new Model 149, a small size oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO), that operates at temperatures suitable for commercial and industrial use. CTS introduced the new precision OCXO along with the company’s other cutting-edge offerings at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Tampa, Fla., June 3-5 at booth number 322.

Model 149 delivers performance that improves signal sources for telecommunications switching and wireless communication applications while offering great cost savings. The part is ultra-durable with stability as tight as ±50 ppb at -40° to +85°C temperature range and low phase noise of its kind at -152 dBc/Hz offset 100 kHz from the carrier. The device offers frequency ranges from 10 to 25 MHz, 3.3 V or 5.0 V supply voltage options and at steady state, +25°C, it consumes less than 1 Watt of power. The product comes in a small 9 x 14 mm surface mount footprint for design engineers in need of more board space and HCMOS output logic. Model 149 is competitively priced at $45 each at 100-piece quantity.
