Rakon Hosts Master Class with Leading Lean Expert
20 October 2016
When an opportunity arose last month to host Simply Lean Business Solutions’ Auckland-based event, technology company Rakon embraced it.
Led by renowned Lean Consultant Akinori Hyodo, the two day class used Rakon’s local manufacturing facility to highlight lean principles and techniques in practice – and suggest areas for improvement. Mr. Hyodo has a career spanning 40 years fostering Kaizen and the Toyota Production System (TPS) within Toyota Japan – one of the world’s largest and most successful companies. He is a former manager at one of Toyota’s top manufacturing plants and is President of that plant’s Group Training Facility.
Rakon Introduces Ultra-low Phase Jitter GHz VCXO for Coherent Optical Modules and Base Stations
Rakon has announced the release of its new RVG1490L product series, a high performance VCXO that delivers frequencies up to 2.2 GHz with ultra-low RMS phase jitter (as low as 15 fs typ. 12 kHz – 20 MHz). The RVG1490L is an ideal solution for Coherent Optical Networking and high speed ADC/DAC/SERDES clocking, where excellent oscillator phase noise and jitter is critical to system performance. This product is also available as an XO, as Rakon’s RXG1490L series.

Rakon’s Ultra-Low Noise Oscillators Now Available in C and S Bands
Rakon has released three new products to its ultra low noise Oven Controlled SAW Oscillator(OCSO) range. LNO3200B3, LNO4800B3 and LNO5000B3 generate frequencies of 3.2GHz, 4.8GHz and 5.0GHz respectively. The extended frequencies offer advanced performance and application flexibility.
The OCSOs are ideal when low phase noise is required while operating at very high frequencies, such as required in ground based military equipment, radar and instrumentation applications. They are also highly compatible for use in the latest generation of high speed ADC/DACs, which require high frequency clocks with ultra-low jitter.
