New Low Jitter SAW Based Voltage Controlled Oscillator For Clock Smoothing and Frequency Translation

Norwalk, CT...Vectron International has introduced a series of low jitter Clock Smoothing and Frequency Translation Devices used in Telecommunication applications. The VS-500 is a SAW stabilized, voltage controlled oscillator that operates at the fundamental frequency of the internal SAW filter. This filter is a high stability, high-Q quartz device that enables the circuit to achieve low phase jitter performance over a wide operating temperature range. The oscillator is housed in a hermetically sealed J-lead surface mount package. It has an output disable to facilitate on-board testing.

Features include:
  • Output Frequencies from 155 MHz to 1 GHz
  • Low Jitter, 3pS rms (typical) for 622.080 MHz and 6pS rms (typical) for 155 MHz
  • Smallest 622.080 MHz package available
  • 10K ECL, PECL logic levels with fast transition times
  • Complementary outputs
  • Low profile, surface mount package
The devices are ideal for clock smoothing and frequency translation in clock and data retiming applications.

The Vectron International group designs, manufactures and markets frequency generation and control products using the very latest techniques in both standard crystal and surface acoustic wave (SAW) based designs from DC to microwave frequencies. Products include crystals and crystal oscillators; SAW filters and components; and clock and data recovery products used in telecommunication and data communication applications.
