Engineer working at lab

Wireless networks such as 5G and industrial automation have completely changed the way people communicate, connecting people all around the world with just the press of a button. This new era of digital transformation is marked by high speed, low latency, and multiple connections. As networks require an increase in data transmission speed, as high as 800 Gb/s, precise frequency stability is needed to maintain performance.

To help meet these requirements, Aker has developed a family of frequency control solutions for 5G, networking and industrial automation applications. Our TCXO (Temperature-Compensated Crystal Oscillator) and differential products create significantly faster data speeds, lower latency and increased capacity needed in today’s world. Their high-frequency stability, low jitter and lower power consumption, make them ideal for meeting the needs of the high-speed data exchange required in today’s wireless networks. These innovative technologies not only deliver highly stable signal synchronization, but also ensure unparalleled reliability in complex environments.

Here’s how Aker’s TCXO and differential products provide significant advantages for these wireless systems.

TCXOs: Stable, Reliable Frequency Control

Designed to provide stable oscillation frequencies at high temperatures, by effectively eliminating frequency changes due to temperature fluctuations, Aker’s TCXO series improves product reliability and accuracy.

Key advantages include:

  • Suitable for diverse application requirements with a wide frequency range from 10 MHz to 52 MHz
  • Temperature dependence as low as ±0.5 ppm that enables high frequency stability and accuracy
  • Ideal for use in harsh environments with an operational temperature range from -40°C to +105°C
  • Ultra-low phase noise that meets the precise timing needs of industrial process control systems


By delivering the performance and reliability needed for today’s complex industrial equipment demands, Aker’s TCXOs enable efficient data processing and communication that is critical in connected devices, including industrial PCs, servers, Ethernet switches and 5G infrastructure.
