Low Noise Oscillators feature 2.5 V operation.

Press Release Summary:



Including ASICs, XpressO(TM) LVPECL and LVDS oscillators employ noise reducing DSM technology and low noise architecture, providing low jitter and phase noise levels. Models FXO-PC72 and FXO-LC72 offer 0.75 MHz to 1.0 GHz frequency range, stabilities as tight as ±20 ppm, and operate at temperatures of -20 to +70°C or -40 to +85°C. They are suited for low power applications including SONET, Ethernet, SAN, broadband access, microprocessors/DSP/FPGA, and industrial controllers.



Original Press Release:



Fox Electronics' New 2.5-Volt XpressO(TM) LVPECL and LVDS Oscillators Require up to 50% Less Current



Fort Myers, Fla. March 17, 2008 - Fox Electronics, America's leading supplier of frequency control solutions, now offers its XpressO(TM) LVPECL and LVDS oscillators with 2.5-volt operation that require up to 50% less current than traditional 3.3-volt models. The new oscillators enable operation at the same voltage as the silicon chips to which they are providing timing, resulting in less current and heat generation.

The FXO-PC72 and FXO-LC72 oscillators employ noise reducing DSM technology and low noise architecture, offering significantly low levels of jitter and phase noise. This series is ideal for a variety of applications including SONET, Ethernet, storage area network, broadband access, microprocessors/DSP/FPGA, industrial controllers, test and measurement equipment, fiber channel and portable applications requiring low power usage.

The LVPECL and LVDS oscillators feature application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for accurate performance, decreased cost and increased flexibility. Designed to benefit engineers and purchasing personnel alike, these high-quality, low-cost oscillators offer short lead times and are guaranteed to be shipped within 24 hours for samples and within 10 days maximum for production quantities.

The LVPECL and LVDS oscillators offer a frequency range of 0.75 MHz to 1.0 GHz and stabilities as tight as ±20 ppm and operate at temperatures of -20°C to +70°C or -40°C to +85°C.

The RoHS-compliant series is constructed of gold over nickel termination finish and features industry-standard packaging of 7 mm x 5 mm including footprint and pin-out.

In addition, these oscillators offer Fox's new, patented serial identification system with comprehensive traceability to ensure quality control by tracing any product back to its original manufacturing lot.

Pricing for XpressO LVPECL and LVDS versions will vary depending on the output, frequency and stability needed. A 2.5 V, ± 25 ppm, LVDS/LVPECL, 212.5 MHz oscillator costs $4.43 each in quantities of 1,000.

Fox enables even greater design flexibility with 2.5 V and 3.3 V LVPECL and LVDS versions available.
