?Crystal Oscillators?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Rakon TCXOs feature power management from Rakon, which we summarised at the time by saying "Rakon has developed a range of digitally controlled temperature controlled crystal oscillator that can maximise battery life and minimise the electronic signature of military equipment. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Mini oscillators for battery-powered applications from Saelig: "Saelig has introduced four new ranges of low-voltage crystal oscillators in miniature surface-mount packages that are well suited for use in battery-powered applications.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Freescale Semiconductor - take a look at LNAs target wireless communications markets which says: "Freescale Semiconductor has introduced four new low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) for wireless communications markets. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Euroquartz, Oscillators target battery powered applications, as well as MEMS rate sensor for the automotive market from Murata Electronics, and Flexible in-circuit clocks for gaming and business from Silicon Laboratories.
