TAITIEN TCXO Delivers OCXO Performance

TAITIEN TCXO Delivers OCXO Performance Available at CDI   TAITIEN Electronics, a leading provider of frequency control solutions, has introduced the highest performance temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXOs) in the industry, the TT series now available at Component Distributors Inc. (CDI). Ideally suited for applications demanding high-precision timing such as cellular base stations, test instruments, wireless backhaul and core network equipment, the TT series can deliver the tight frequency stability which could previously only be achieved by OCXOs. The TT series provides high performance with lower power consumption and a miniaturizedRead More
Pulse Electronics Corporation and CDI introduce a near field communications (NFC) antenna that enables mobile phones to read data from a distance of up to 40mm. The antenna sends and receives clear signals even when installed in a handset in close proximity to the battery or metal housing. Pulse Electronics’ ferrite sheet antenna can be customized to the varying sizes of handset mechanics, is easy to implement, and enables safe, non-contact, wireless communication for NFC connectivity to mobile devices. NFC antennas are needed so mobile devices can communicate with otherRead More
A Cost Effective High Stability Timing Solution   Today’s system designers are faced with the ongoing challenge of supporting an IP network that is driven by IP cost models but requires high levels of timing accuracy. For the designer looking at a timing solution; this means providing a small form factor, cost effective high stability timing solution. It is this challenge that the OX-501 is designed to address. Find Vectron’s OX-501 mini OCXO at Component Distributors Inc. (CDI). It combines a small footprint with high stability and supports packet basedRead More
For many designers, designing a circuit with minimum Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) emissions is a challenge. Mercury United Electronics has a family of clock oscillator products that can lower the level of undesired signals before they are ever generated. A system clock is frequently one of the largest contributors to EMI issues, since it is distributed throughout the entire design. With a spread-spectrum clock oscillator, the amount of energy that would normally be contained in a single frequency is spread out, reducing the amount of energy by -10 dB or moreRead More
