Euroquartz now offers a wider range of programmable oscillators available on short delivery times. The range includes LVDS and LVPECL oscillators that can be delivered with specified frequency band and custom specifications within 15 working days as standard with options of 10, 7, 5 and 3 working days when production loading permits. The XOPL81 series of factory programmable LVDS oscillators provides high reliability in use and offers stability from ±50ppm over 40 to +85°C. Supply voltages of 3.3 or 5.0V are available, the 3.3V version being suitable for driving 2.5V logic arrays. Housed in a miniature 11.4 x 9.6 mm eight pad surface mount device (SMD) package, the LVDS programmable oscillators are available in the frequency range from 1 to 133MHz and are ideal for a wide range of applications including XAUI, 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, ISCSI, Sonet, Infiniband, Hypertransport, PCI Express, SPI 4.2 and Serial ATA devices. Specifications include ageing of ±5ppm per year maximum, 40mA maximum supply current, output waveform symmetry from 45/55% to 55/45% (1.25V level), rise/fall times of 1ns maximum and output load of RL = 100 Ohms maximum, CL = 10pF maximum.
