Miami - Raltron Electronics Corp.'s 5 x 7-mm low-voltage differential-signaling clock oscillator, the CLD, boasts high-frequency specifications. LVDS is said to offer a cost-effective, multigigabit data transfer on copper cables or printed-circuit board traces. Coming in a surface-mount package, the clock oscillators provide jitter of 1 picosecond rms in a frequency range of 60 to 200 MHz, with frequency stabilities of plus/minus 20 ppm to plus/minus 100 ppm. The devices are available in a supply voltage of 3.3 volts at 40 milliamps maximum current consumption. An enable/ disable function is available.The CLD series of crystal oscillators is priced at $6 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is in six weeks.
