15 to 2100MHz programmable oscillators boast 110 fs RMS phase jitter

May 10, 2016 // By Julien Happich
The CY294X family of programmable oscillators launched by Cypress can produce any frequency between 15 MHz and 2100 MHz, while achieving an industry leading RMS phase jitter of 110 fs.

The oscillators offer performance that exceeds the reference clock requirements of demanding high-speed interface standards including 40/100GbE, SyncE and IEEE 1588, making them suitable for networking applications such as switches and routers, wireless base stations, Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) hubs and any systems requiring high-performance clocks.

The devices operate at supply voltages of 1.8V, 2.5V and 3.3V, and displays reliable performance for ambient temperatures ranging from –40°C to +105°C. The part is on-board programmable using an industry-standard I2C interface, which gives end customers the flexibility to use a single device across a family of hardware platforms. The CY294X family comes with two evaluation kits (CY3676 and CY3677) and programming software (CyClockWizard 2.1) to help designers create their desired frequencies and to easily check device performance. The CY294X family is currently sampling in 5x7mm LCC, 5x3.2mm LCC and 16-pin QFN packages, with production expected by July 2016.
