Q-Tech Announces In-Stock Availability of its Space-Qualified & B-Level Crystal Oscillators

Leading manufacturer of high-performance crystal clock oscillators and frequency control solutions, Q-Tech Corporation, has announced the in-stock availability of its full space-qualified and B-Level quartz crystal oscillators in traditional and ultra-miniature packages.

The immediate availability of these components may alleviate supply chain problems delaying production of space, military, avionics and high temperature applications requiring fully tested and certified devices. In addition, a large inventory of B-Level components, perfectly suited for new product development are also available. These devices provide an acceptable level of performance at a far lower price than fully space-qualified units.

The current in-stock inventory of hundreds of full space-qualified part numbers includes products with a wide range of device configurations (XO, TCXO, VCXO, SAW) in both traditional and ultra-miniature packages. These devices are screened for compliance with a range of standards. All Q-Tech space certified devices offer a range of 50 to 300 kRad(Si) total dose ionization radiation hardening.

Q-Tech B-Level devices are produced to the same precision and quality standards but are less expensive because they have not been subjected to the time-consuming range of qualification test procedures. These devices are ideal for early-stage design where quick-turn breadboard evaluations are critical. 

While high-reliability crystal oscillators have a tremendous heritage for flight and non-flight applications, lead times are often critical in meeting urgent program needs,” said Scott Sentz, Q-Tech’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “By offering a broad range of readily available stock, Q-Tech is often in a position to fill this void.”
