SAW-Based Oscillators have 150-800 MHz output range.
October 16, 2006 -
Measuring 5.0 x 7.5 x 2.0 mm, SO-720 all-inclusive ±50 ppm max clock oscillator and VS-720 ±50 ppm min APR voltage controlled SAW oscillator are ROHS-compliant. Miniature devices, housed in hermetically sealed, leadless SMT packages, offer 3.3 V operation and typ broadband period jitter of under 3.0 ps rms (under 20 ps peak-to-peak) consistently over operating temperature, control voltage, and power supply range. Both provide enable/disable function.

Vectron Announces New Product Family of SAW Based Oscillators
New Ultra Low Jitter, High Frequency and Tight Temperature Stability Oscillators Satisfy Growing Demand for High Performance, Cost Effective Clock Solutions
HUDSON, N.H., Sept. 18 -- Vectron International, a division of Dover Corporation (NYSE:DOV) and a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of Frequency Control, Sensor, and Hybrid Product solutions, today announced the full production release of the new SO-720 and VS-720 product family of SAW based oscillators. The SO-720 clock oscillator and VS-720 voltage controlled oscillator are for use in Wireline, Wireless, Military, and Test Equipment applications and enable system designers to realize clocking performance levels typically offered at lower frequencies and in larger footprints.
Vectron's new 5.0 x 7.5 x 2.0 mm oscillators offer crystal-like frequency stability, and initial accuracy performance, while providing SAW-like jitter performance over a broad 150 - 800 MHz output frequency range. Unlike recently announced PLL-based oscillators, the jitter and broadband phase noise of the VS-720 and SO-720 are consistently low over full operating temperature, control voltage and power supply range. These miniature devices provide ideal clock sources for driving high speed Analog to Digital Converters in telecom, wireless and instrumentation applications, jitter attenuation in Optical Transport and Access applications and low jitter reference clocks for FPGA's, SERDES and Military applications.
The SO-720 is a plus or minus 50 ppm maximum all-inclusive clock oscillator, is footprint compatible with other 5.0 mm x 7.5 mm XO's, and offers an enable/disable function on pin 1 or pin 2. The SO-720 complements the Vectron crystal based VCC6. The VS-720 is a plus or minus 50 ppm minimum APR VCSO, is footprint compatible with other 5.0 mm x 7.5 mm VCXO & VCSO's, and offers an enable/disable function on pin 2. The VS-720 complements the Vectron SAW based VS-700 and Crystal based VC-710. These oscillators are fully compliant with the EC ROHS directive and are qualified for +260ºC peak lead free assembly. Additionally, they are housed in hermetically sealed leadless surface mount packages and offered in either bulk or tape and reel packaging
Key Features include:
o Output Frequencies available from 150 MHz to 800 MHz.
o 3.3 V Operation with Complementary LV-PECL or LVDS Output Configurations
o Ultra Low Jitter banded jitter of < 0.15 ps rms across 12 kHz to 20 MHz OC-48 Offset Bandwidth and <0.20 ps rms across 50 kHz to 80 MHz OC-192 Offset Bandwidth
o Typical Broadband Period Jitter of <3.0 ps rms and <20 ps peak to peak
o Enable/Disable Function with Enable High or Enable Low Options
o Temperature Stability of plus or minus 20 ppm typical over -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius
o Minimum APR options of plus or minus 50 ppm and plus or minus 80 ppm over -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius on VS-720 VCSO
o Overall Stability options of plus or minus 50 ppm and plus or minus 100 ppm on SO-720 Clock
o Linear VCXO Gain of approximately +90 ppm/V on VS-720
o Competitively priced with other high frequency XO's, VCXO's and VCSO's
o Product is free of lead and fully compliant to EC RoHS Directive
o >40 discrete output frequencies available for quick sampling with other frequencies available upon request.
Sample lead time is 2 - 4 weeks ARO and production lead time is 8 - 10 weeks ARO. For additional information on the SAW based oscillators or any other Vectron products please contact a customer service representative at 1-88-VECTRON-1 or visit http://www.vectron.com/.
