Kyocera develops World’s Smallest TCXO for Mobile Communications Handsets

Kyocera announced the successful development of its KT1612 temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO), which achieves an industry-leading level of low-phase noise characteristics with the world’s smallest size (1.6mm x 1.2mm) for an electronic component mounted in mobile communications handsets including smart phones. Kyocera has achieved the world’s smallest product size of 1.6mm x 1.2mm, reducing surface area by 40% over conventional Kyocera products, due to the crystal element miniaturization technology accumulated over the years by Kyocera Crystal Device.

With the implementation of an IC that uses Kyocera’s unique noise-reduction circuit and micro wiring process, Kyocera has succeeded in reducing not only the size of the product but also significantly decreasing phase noise by 7dBc ([email protected] offset) compared to Kyocera’s conventional products. This contributes to reducing design burden and ensuring high-quality data communication through measures against noise in high-speed, high-capacity wireless communications such as those using smart phones. The new KT1612 will be available on a sample basis starting September 2012.
