A New Low Jitter Frequency Translator from Vectron International
Vectron International (VI) has introduced a new low jitter frequency translator designed
to simplify a wide variety of frequency translation and clock smoothing applications.
The FX-500 is a complete crystal-based frequency
translator, providing superior stability and jitter performance. The new product offers
a flexible solution that reduces design time, increases circuit reliability and reduces
board space. Output frequency ranges from 100 kHz to 77.76 MHz, with a supply voltage
that can be either 3.3V or 5V. The device is hermetically sealed in an industry standard
6 pin J-lead ceramic SMD package measuring only 14.0 x 9.0 x 4.5 mm.
The small size, versatile functionality and high performance of the FX-500 make it ideal
for various applications in SONET/SDH/ATM, WDM, Digital Cross Connect, DSLAM, DSLAR, Access
Nodes, Cable Modem Head End and Base Station (GSM, CDMA).
Vectron International 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.
