Frequency control specialist, Euroquartz is to launch a new range of UK manufactured surface mount military clock oscillators at the forthcoming Embedded Design Show (EDS 2019, October 16th & 17th, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK). The new components will be manufactured in the company’s recently installed class 7 cleanroom facility and preliminary specifications have been announced encompassing frequencies available from 2.0 to 60MHz.

The new EQXO75000BM series oscillators will comprise a TTL/CMOS-compatible circuit with a miniature quartz crystal housed in a low-profile ceramic surface mount package measuring 7.0 x 5.0 x 2.5mm. Utilising the latest advances in production technology, the combination of optimised design and high-quality materials will provide a high-reliability clock oscillator suitable for the defence and aerospace markets. The principal advantages of these UK-manufactured components are that they will be free from ITAR regulations with reduced shipping costs. In addition, customers will be able to visit the production facility without facing long haul flights.

Euroquartz’s new SMD EQXO75000BM series will complement the company’s existing range of DIL products and will be ideal for use in new designs. The parts can be supplied with or without full military screening all controlled within the AS9100 Quality Management System.

Euroquartz is also exhibiting its latest ranges of products including miniature surface mount temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) offering very low current consumption, surface mount oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs) for high accuracy frequency control, and a range of ultra-miniature, ultra-low current crystal oscillators from Statek for high-reliability applications.

Euroquartz is exhibiting on stand F2 at EDS.
