AEC-Q200 ultra-miniature industrial/ automotive clock oscillator

August 24, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
IQD’s ( Crewkerne, UK) AEC-Q200 qualified clock oscillators released to TS16949 are aimed at industrial and automotive applications. The IQXO-540 AUTO series is housed in a 2.0 x 1.6 x 0.8 mm ceramic sealed package with frequencies available in the range from 4.0 to 50 MHz.

With stabilities down to ±25ppm over -40 to +85C or ±50 ppm over the extended temperature range of -40 to 125C, this range of clock oscillators is suitable for extreme environments found in industrial and automotive applications including ABS, Airbag Sensors, Drive Controls, Keyless Entry, Navigation, Security Systems, Solar Panels, Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) receivers, Wi-Fi and WiMax.


Three voltages are available; the IQXO-540 AUTO operates at 3.3V; the IQXO-541 AUTO at 2.5V and the IQXO-542 AUTO at 1.8V. All variants deliver a CMOS output along with an enable/disable function. With a current consumption as low as 5 mA and standby current of 10 µA (-40 to 85C) these models are also ideal for battery operated equipment.
