Ready for small cell rollout

Jauch Quartz’ new oscillator range is designed to match the performance specifications of 5G applications which are about to see a burst of activity

Jauch Quartz has launched a new range of precision temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) and a voltage controlled option (VCTCXO) offering frequency stability of ±50 parts per billion and operating temperature range of -40 to 105°C.

Frequencies include: 10.00, 19.20, 20.00, 25.00, 38.88, 40.00 and 50.00MHz. Three standard surface mount packages are 7.0 by 5.0, 5.0 by 3.2 and 3.2 by 2.5mm.

The JTP75HC(V) and JTP53HC(V) have an HCMOS output with a 3.3V current supply and a maximum current consumption of 10mA. The JTP32CS(V) has a clipped sinewave output and is available in a range of voltages from 1.8 to 3.3V and a maximum current consumption of 3mA.

Growth of 5G applications over coming years is creating demand for tighter stability frequency products operating over wider operating temperature ranges. This range is Jauch’s first step in supporting customers in these markets.

5G runs on lower power than 4G meaning it requires a Massive In Massive Out (MIMO) system. In turn, this requires millions of small cells throughout cities, urban areas and in homes, offices and factories. Pico and Femto small cells will be key to critical IoT and industrial automation where a <1ms latency and 99.9 per cent reliability is required. It is estimated by 2025 there will be five billion IoT connections. There will also be a growth in the positive optical network (PON) market as more offices and homes are connected by fibre to the home/office (FTTH/O).
