Hudson, N.H. Vectron International has extended the output frequency range of its surface acoustic wave (SAW) based oscillators up to 1 GHz for wireline, wireless, military and test equipment applications. The S0-720 clock oscillator and VS-720 voltage controlled oscillator deliver crystal-like frequency stability and initial accuracy performance while providing SAW-like jitter performance up to an output frequency of 1.0 GHz.
The SO-720 and VS-720 family provides clock sources for driving high-speed analog to digital converters in telecommunications, cellular and instrumentation applications; jitter attenuation in optical transport and access applications, and low jitter reference clocks for FPGAs, SERDES and military applications. Unlike PLL-based oscillators, the jitter and broadband phase noise of the VS-720 are consistently low over the full operating temperature, control voltage and power supply range, said Vectron.
Packaged in a 5.0 x 7.5 x 2.0-mm footprint, the VS-720 is a ±100 ppm minimum absolute pull range (APR) voltage controlled SAW oscillator (VCSO). The VCSO offers an enable/disable function for testability and complements the Vectron SAW-based VS-700 and crystal-based VC-710 devices.
Also housed in a 5.0 x 7.5 x 2.0-mm package, the SO-720 is ±50 ppm maximum all-inclusive clock oscillator that offers an enable/disable function for testability.
Both products are fully compliant with the RoHS directive and are qualified for 260°C peak lead-free assembly. They are housed in hermetically sealed leadless surface-mount packages and offered in either bulk or tape-and reel-packaging.
Vectron is showcasing the SO-720 and VS-720 oscillator family in Booth 1101 at the 2007 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium, June 3-8.
