Temex launches Flatpack OCXO into outer space

23.02.2006


Temex of France, a specialist in the field of high-performance time and frequency components and sub-systems, has launched a small-size Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) in a 25mm x 25mm flat-pack package for space applications. This new low-consumption OCXO is designed specifically for applications such as deep-space up/down link transceivers where a wide operating temperature range and low energy consumption are critical.“



Designed to meet the ESA SCC3501 specification and in accordance with the MIL-PRF-55310 standard, the new low-consumption OCXO offers key advantages such as a frequency range of 30 to 120 MHz; a small size of just 25mm x 25mm x 17mm; a stability of ±0.1ppm nominal over a temperature range of -25°C to +70°C (vacuum condition); ageing of just ±2ppm after 15 years; consumption of only 0.3W at 25°C in steady state (vacuum condition); a supply voltage of 9 volts; and a phase noise floor at -155dBc/Hz at 100KHz from the carrier.

The frequency stability of this new OCXO has a positive impact on satellite transceiver performances. The transmission range is secured by the higher stability of the frequency and the low energy consumption is a mandatory requirement for space-borne equipment. A breadboard model or an engineering model of this new OCXO are available for system validation.


This breakthrough product results from Temex’s long-standing experience in the design and manufacture of highly stable and precise frequency sources for demanding scientific missions. Such deep space missions, like Mars Express, require state-of-the-art technology to secure a continuous transmission with high frequency stability. The International Space Station (ISS), Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) and Galileo programmes are also supported by Temex high-tech solutions.

The Temex Flatpack XO, VCXO and TCXO product ranges are already used all over the world. This new surface-mounted Flatpack OCXO frequency source provides the flexibility expected by our customers. It is the only OCXO worldwide providing such high performances at the same time – low consumption, low phase noise and reduced volume,” says Mr Jean Forget, Managing Director of Temex Defence and Space Business Group.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
