Tiny TCXOs target satellite radio receivers

Designed to provide the frequency stability required to accurately discriminate and hold signals, NDK (Nihon Dempa Kogyo Co., Ltd.) has introduced two surface-mount temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) for satellite radio receivers that typically require high-performance frequency sources to help receive and decode a 2.4 GHz signal particularly in locations where signals are hard to reach, said the company.
