Raltron Electronics has announced the introduction of two families of products allowing for user selection of frequencies from either a clock or voltage controlled oscillator.
Within a frequency range of from 10 1200MHz, both new CSMF and VSMF series are based on an advanced Digital PLL Platform that can be pre-programmed for up to two different output frequencies. This flexibility significantly reduces design and turnaround costs.
Both series incorporate a low frequency crystal with Low Jitter Synthesis to provide a wide range of frequencies. Both the CSMF clock and VSMF voltage controlled units are available in LVCMS, LVPECL and LVDS output formats making the VSMF aptly suitable for SONET/SDH, GIGABIT ETHERNET, CLOCK/DATA RECOVERY and DSL with the CSMF units additionally useful in FIBRE CHANNEL applications.
Operating voltage for both the CSMF clocks and VSMF voltage controlled units are from 2.5 3.3V @ 35 45 mA within their frequency range of 10 1200MHz with RMS phase jitter at 0.8ps typ. within an operating temperature range of from 40 to +85ºC. Units are supplied in a 5 X 7 mm ceramic package.
The Raltron Dual Frequency CSMF and VSMF oscillators are available within four weeks for sampling requirements with production quantities at 6- 8 weeks ARO. Current pricing is at $ 9.75 each for CSMF units and $14.75 for VSMF ’s in quantities of 1K pieces. For detailed data sheets, sample requests and for specific price and delivery quotations please contact Raltron headquarters or visit their web site:

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
