Fort Myers, Fla. – Fox Electronics now offers an LVDS version, in addition to the recently released LVPECL version of its next generation ultra-precision-oscillator technology, XpressO-ULTRA. Designed to meet today’s bandwidth requirements, the XpressO-ULTRA is said to provide exceptionally clean and stable clocking to ensure better performance and lower bit rate errors.
The ultra-precision oscillators, which are available in 2.5 V or 3.3 V, with ultra-low jitter as low as 100 fs over the 1.875 MHz-20 MHz bandwidth and 250 fs over the 12 kHz to 20 MHz bandwidth, can be used in a number of modern electronics with high-speed data requirements, including 40G to 100G Ethernet, 16G-32G Fibre Channel, and 100G-400G Optical Transport Networks.
The oscillators, housed in a standard 5- x 3.2-mm package and pin-out, come with a tri-state enable/disable feature that allows for testing and performance verification. The RoHS-compliant units offer a gold over nickel termination finish. Other characteristics include consumer and industrial operating temperature ranges from -20~+70C and -40°C ~ +85°C with stabilities as tight as ±20 ppm.
The LVDS XpressO-ULTRA oscillators are built on the company’s XpressO technology, and new proprietary ASIC family with a 4th order Delta Sigma Modulator (DSM) that is said to significantly reduce noise to levels comparable with traditional bulk quartz and SAW oscillators. The ASIC family enables the configuration of output type, input voltages and frequency within the oscillator, said Fox.
Availability: Less than two weeks. (Each XpressO-ULTRA oscillator has a unique serial ID to track every aspect of the manufacturing process.)
Pricing: Depends on frequency, stability, operating temperature, and quantity.
