(March 22, 2017) Abracon, LLC. (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, signal conditioning, clocking and magnetic components, announces availability of the 32kHz and real time clock (RTC) solutions guide. Almost all electronic components require time keeping that includes hours, minutes, seconds as well as long term calendar time. Useful for long term synchronization of scheduled events such as periodic wake-up, measurement and communication links, RTCs are critical in applications such as wearbles, IoT, industrial process control, automation, machine to machine (M2M), medical monitoring, smart meters, and instrumentation.
Each application differs in power, size and time keeping accuracy constraints. The solutions guide enables quick selection across Abracon’s leading edge 22nA current consumption standalone RTCs to extend battery life, the fully integrated ±5ppm stability 32.768kHz TCXO solutions for the best long term accuracy, and the world’s smallest watch-MEMS® solutions enabling compact form factors not possible using quartz crystals.
Additionally, as The heartbeat of the IoT®, Abracon brings IoT optimized low ESR quartz crystal solutions to market that guarantee crystal startup on next generation energy saving MCUs that rely on 32.768kHz.
“The real time clock relying on 32.768kHz base frequency is the work horse of timekeeping and synchronization within electronic equipment,” says Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing for Abracon. “By far the most widely shipped of any single clocking application, Abracon has developed a leadership position within these applications.”
“Abracon is committed to provide advanced solutions that solve the challenges of next generation design problems,” comments Syed Raza, VP of Engineering with Abracon. “As a complete timing supplier, Abracon’s RTC and 32kHz offering covers all corners of size, power and accuracy requirements in the industry.”
The new solutions guide features the ABx8x5 22nA current consumption RTC, the ABS06/ABS07 32kHz quartz crystals, AB-RTC family of RTCs with integrated crystals and the ASTM series of kHz range watchMEMS devices available through franchised distributors.
