1.8V oscillator matches lower voltage levels of current chip sets

July 08, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Fox Electronics (part of IDT) has a 1.8 V HCMOS oscillator, XpressO-ULTRA that provides lower power consumption without sacrificing performance. Designers can employ a compact 1.8 V ultra-precision oscillator that works at the same circuit level as modern chip sets.

Recognising that today's electronics are both more sophisticated and subjected to high temperature extremes, Fox developed the new FXU-HC51 series to operate across a wide temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

The new oscillator can be used in many high component density applications with limited power options or heat dissipation concerns. Uses range from SONET, Ethernet, storage area networks and broadband access to microprocessors, FPGAs, industrial controllers and test and measurement equipment.

The low voltage HCMOS XOs offer stabilities as tight at ±20 ppm and a frequency range of 0.016 MHz to 62.5 MHz with a frequency resolution to six decimal places. Package size is 5 x 3.2 mm; the XpressO-ULTRA series incorporates the performance attributes defined by Fox’s original XpressO line to provide low jitter in highly dense electronic environments.

The exceptional delivery times and low price point of Fox’s XpressO-ULTRA help to further revolutionize the frequency control industry.
