KYOCERA to Mass-Produce World's Thinnest TCXO
High precision, ultra-miniature KT2016 Series for GPS applications
February 26, 2009Kyocera Corporation (President: Makoto Kawamura) today announced that it will begin mass production next month of its new KT2016 Series Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO), which has the world's lowest profile* and is amongst the world's smallest TCXO units for GPS applications at a size of 2.0×1.6×0.75(max)mm. Along with its high precision in GPS applications, the new KT2016 Series has achieved an approximately 40 percent reduction in size and volume compared with Kyocera's conventional KT2520 Series, thereby contributing to mounting area miniaturization.

Kyocera KT2016 Series TCXO
Through the establishment of an original simulation technique which optimizes the compatibility of Integrated Circuits (IC) and crystal units, the KT2016 Series has achieved a reduction in phase noise and current consumption. By combining lower supply voltage with standby capability, the KT2016 contributes to overall energy saving in the equipment in which it is employed.
Kyocera will continue to meet the diverse needs of its customers through the integrated organization of development and manufacturing of highly functional electronic devices using synthetic quartz crystal growth as its core technology to develop crystal units, crystal oscillators and other related devices from raw materials.
