Abracon Offers Availability of the 32 kHz and Real Time Clock (RTC) Solutions Guide

By Rob GrayApril 5, 2017

Abracon, a global manufacturer of superior quality signal conditioning, clock distribution, frequency control, and magnetic components, announces the release of 32 kHz and real-time clock (RTC) solutions guide

Most of the electronic components today require precise time keeping in hours, minutes, and seconds. Some devices also need the integration of long-term calendar time to synchronize scheduled events such as reminders, notifications, and wake-up alarm.

Abracon’s high-grade RTCs can offer accurate timekeeping in a variety of applications ranging from industrial process control, automation, machine to machine (M2M), IoT, smart meters, medical monitoring, instrumentation, and wearables.

The purpose of RTCs in each of these applications varies in size, operating power, timekeeping, and space constraints. The recently introduced solutions guide released for 32 kHz and Real Time Clock (RTC) presents a comprehensive view about Abracon’s industry-leading RTC product line, helping system designers to quickly select application-specific RTCs for enhanced performance capabilities and extended battery life of devices.

“The real time clock relying on 32.768 kHz base frequency is the workhorse 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.”

The best in class Abracon RTCs integrate ±5ppm stability, cutting-edge 32.768 kHz Temperature-Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) solutions, and the world’s smallest watch - MEMS®, which enables small form factors in space constrained applications impossible to achieve with quartz crystals.

“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 32 kHz offering covers all corners of size, power and accuracy requirements in the industry.”

Abracon globally markets industry leading low ESR crystal solutions, optimized for the IoT. The solutions ensure seamless crystal startup on energy-efficient MCUs relying on 32.768 kHz.

Abracon’s Real Time Clock portfolio with integrated crystals is RoHS compliant, lead and halogen free. For more information on the newly released solutions guide, please contact the WPGA PEMCO team.
