noise problem? The phase noise seems a little lower than in other types of CMOS oscillators and should be much lower at the frequencies at which it is user configurable. I'm also pretty sure it will have an option of being separately packaged, since wire bonding is also used for linking silicon to the package. That's my 2 cents anyway.

Yes, it can be packaged on its own too. In fact, I believe you can set up its pinout to match that of the quartz oscillator it is replacing.

Very nice solution. I guess with the noise problems, it will never be integrated onto the ASIC. Can it be used in a separate package in the system or does it have to be packaged with the ASIC to avoid stray capacitance and ground loop issues?
