- Aging rate to 0.06 ppb/day

- I2C interface with frequency coefficients,

temperature sensor, and current sensor

- Output: HCMOS, Sinewave

- Supply: 5V or 12V

- Package: 28 x 38 x 14mm


- LTE Base Stations

    Vectron has released two new GNSS disciplined oscillators built on the same platform as the MD-261 series with an embedded Furuno Opus 7 receiver. In addition, they have upgraded the onboard OCXO of the MD-261, improving 24 hour holdover to 8 µs at constant temperatures.

  • Choose Vectron in LoRa Applications and Designs

    When designing or building your LoRa applications, you can choose to implement standard chipsets available in the market. However, there are numerous reasons why you would want to build your own custom design, and/or deviate from standard chipsets. Vectron already has many satisfied customers who successfully implement combinations of Vectron components in their LoRa designs.
