Pericom Aims New Timing Products at Mobility Platforms 
Temperature and Voltage Compensated Crystal Oscillators Merge
Performance and Value for Mobility Platforms 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13 --  Pericom Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEM), a leading supplier of high-speed
connectivity, signal-conditioning and timing solutions, today
introduced a new product family of Temperature Compensated Crystal
Oscillators (TCXO), many with added Voltage Controlled option
(VCTCXO) and all designed to bring excellent performance, small size,
low power, and value to mobility platforms such as smart phones, GPS,
wireless modules, and portable industrial and medical equipment, as
well as more traditional telecommunications and automotive
"Our new TCXO family allows mobile platform designers to have
excellent frequency and voltage stability performance over a very
wide temperature range while still meeting their cost targets," said
Steve Wang, Pericom marketing director for timing products. "Being
fully vertically integrated allows us to optimize and match our
quartz based product design and manufacturing process to customer
needs, especially features that enable smooth integration into mobile
platform designs."  
Pericom TCXO products offer excellent frequency stability from
+/-0.5-5.0 ppm over the industrial temperature range of -40 degrees C
to +85 degrees C. Typical support frequency ranges from a few MHz to
a maximum 40 MHz to cover almost all application needs. Supply
voltage options cover 1.8V to 3.3V. The new product family includes
many frequency options available in both TCXO and VCTCXO (Voltage
Controlled Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator) options in
which the VCTCXO option is voltage-controlled from an external
Aimed at space critical mobile platforms, Pericom's new TCXO/VCTCXO
family supports both standard 3225 (3.2mm x 2.5mm) and 2520 (2.5mm x
2.0mm) small package sizes.  
Annual TCXO unit shipments will reach 1100 million (1.1B) in 2013,
driven by siginificant growth of mainly smart phone based GPS
applications. 3225 and 2520 package sizes account for 80% of total
TCXO volume, with the 2520 becoming the mainstream package size
through 2016. (source: MIC, January 2013) 
 Samples and
