Rakon on board comet-chaser
January 2014: The spacecraft Rosetta, due to reach the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko this year, uses several frequency control components from Rakon.
Rakon crystal oscillators and crystal filters, are used in the COmet Nucleus Sounding Experiment by Radiowave Transmission (CONSERT), which is designed to probe the interior of the comet by using radio waves transmitted through the nucleus between the Philae lander and Rosetta orbiter.
Timing is Everything: Navigating important timing component choices for small cell designers
Sept 2013: The small cell industry now addresses a much greater scope than just the initial residential femtocell. This has implications on one critical and potentially costly component which every small cell must have – a timing oscillator. The low cost residential femtocell oscillators aren't suitable for all applications; so what are today's choices available to small cell designers and what factors determine component selection?
Rakon oscillators launched into Space on environmental mission on board the Indo-French SARAL satellite!
Mougins France, February 26, 2013 – Rakon is proud to announce it is part of the exploration of science and contributes to study the environment, from space, thanks to its Ultra Stable oscillators and Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators used in the Indo-French oceanographic study satellite that was successfully launched on the 25 February 2013 by the Indian Space Agency ISRO.
