A New Ultra Miniature Low Jitter Frequency Translator from Vectron International
Vectron International (VI) has introduced a new, ultra-small, low jitter,
frequency translator designed for a wide variety of frequency translation and
clock smoothing applications.
The FX-700 is a crystal-based
frequency translator that provides superior jitter performance, high output
frequencies and small package size. Output frequency ranges from 1 kHz to
77.76 MHz, with a supply voltage that can be either 3.3V or 5V. The device is
hermetically sealed in a 16 pad ceramic SMD package, measuring only 5 x 7.5
x 2.0mm. The product's advanced custom ASIC technology results in a small,
highly robust, reliable and predictable device, providing a more flexible
option when real estate on the board is an issue.
The small size and high performance of the FX-700 make it ideal for various
applications in SONET/SDH/ATM, WDM, Digital Cross Connect, DSLAM, DSLAR,
Access Nodes, Cable Modem Head Ends and GSM and CDMA Base Stations.
Vectron International is a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing
of frequency generation and control products using the very latest techniques
in both bulk acoustic wave (BAW) and surface acoustic wave (SAW) based designs
from DC to microwave frequencies. Products include crystals and crystal
oscillators; frequency translators; clock and data recovery products and SAW
filters and components used in telecommunication and data communication
