Greenray Re-defines TCXO Performance Standards at e2012.
December, 2012 - Greenray Industries, Inc. staked its claim to "head of the class" status with the introduction of not one, but two, revolutionary, quartz crystal oscillators, the T1300 TCXO and the ANN100 TCXO.
Greenray Industries' new T1300 TCXO is relatively impervious to the effects of extreme shock in highly vibratory environments. The T1300 builds on the performance of its namesake predecessor to offer phase noise performance improvements of better than 40dB when compared with conventional TCXOs. The standard g-sensitivity performance for the new T1300 is <0.05ppb, or 5 x 10-11/g of applied acceleration force - an order of magnitude improvement compared with the best TCXOs currently available. Remarkably, typical performance is now repeatedly 0.02ppb or better, representing a major breakthrough for compact, low-power TCXO performance. Beyond improving performance for existing, defense related applications, the T1300 is ideal for GPS, location/position-recording and similar commercial applications likely to experience harsh environments.
Also announced at Electronica in Munich this November, Greenray's new ANN100 TCXO takes Frequency Stability vs. Temperature performance standards and stands them right on their head. Utilizing Greenray's revolutionary Artificial Neural Network Compensated Crystal Oscillator - ANNCX-Otm, for short - engineers have achieved Stability vs. Temp performance that is orders of magnitude better than that of conventional TCXOs and without the power drain of an OCXO.
The T1300 and ANN100 are emblematic of Greenray's committment to provide our customers highly reliable, innovative signal source products that re-define frequency stablility performance. Look for much more in 2013.
