Rakon Limited (Nzx - RAK) is a New-Zealand-based manufacturer of frequency-timing equipment, primarily quartz crystals and temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXO). Since 1990 Rakon has specialised in supplying frequency-control products to the GPS industry. Rakon considers itself the leading supplier to this market and claims to supply a large percentage of all the frequency-control products used in GPS.

In March 2007, Rakon acquired the frequency-control products division of C-MAC MicroTechnology. This expanded Rakon's product range greatly to include oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXO), voltage-controlled crystal oscillators (VCXO), the Pluto ASIC and a range of low performance commodity products.
