KYOCERA Develops New TCXO For Mobile Communications Handsets With Industry-Leading Low-Phase Noise And World's Smallest Size

Kyocera Corporation (NYSE:KYO)(TOKYO:6971) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Kyocera Crystal Device Corporation — a crystal device development and manufacturing company — announced the successful development of its KT1612 temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO), which achieves an industry-leading level of low-phase noise characteristics with the world's smallest size *1 (1.6mm x 1.2mm) for an electronic component mounted in mobile communications handsets including smart phones. The new KT1612 will be available on a sample basis starting September 2012.
Product name:   Temperature-Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) KT1612
Application: Reference signal source for wireless communication devices such as cellular phone and GPS.

1.6 x 1.2mm (horizontal x vertical)Height of product: Max. 0.7mm
Supply on a sample basis: Starting in September 2012
Frequencies:   16.369MHz, 19.2MHz, 26MHz, 38.4MHz, 52MHz


1. The world's smallest TCXOKyocera has achieved the world's smallest product size of 1.6mm x 1.2mm, reducing surface area by 40% over conventional Kyocera products, due to the crystal element miniaturization technology accumulated over the years by Kyocera Crystal Device, a company with the number one market share of TCXOs used in mobile communication devices *2.

2. Industry-leading level of low-phase noise characteristicsKyocera has decreased the low-phase noise by 7dBC (26MHz@1kHz offset) over conventional products, achieving an industry-leading level through Kyocera's unique circuit design. Since phase noise can cause transmission errors, especially in high-speed wireless communications, it is a vital characteristic for measures against noise. This product is expected to contribute to the application of simpler measures against noise in device design by significantly reducing phase noise.
