Emergency Locator Beacons TCXO

PROFILE:  The Emergency Locator Beacons TCXO series use Rakon's Pluto™ and Pluto++™ ASICs which are a fourth-order temperature-compensation chip. Certain patented features of Rakon’s ASICs enable temperature compensated crystal oscillators achieving the critical level of medium term stability, previously unattainable with any TCXO. This unique performance for the first time has enabled the use of compact, low-cost TCXOs in emergency beacon applications. The TCXO series employ One-Time Programmable (OTP) non-volatile memory which ensures lifetime reliability under adverse conditions.

APPLICATIONS:  Emergency Locator Beacons. COSPAS SARSAT compliant.
