• Extended temperature Military/Aerospace

Vectron’s manufacturing processes, from quartz resonator fabrication to oscillator electronics assembly and test, are painstakingly controlled via ISO and SPC procedures. Vectron fabricates high temperature quartz resonators using proprietary manufacturing processes designed specifically for high temperature and harsh environment applications. In order to ensure high reliability in the field, critical electrode metallization and testing processes are conducted inside state-of-the-art Class 1K cleanrooms, while oscillator assembly is conducted in Class 10K cleanrooms. All high temperature oscillators are 100% tested before delivery.
