PECL/LVDS oscillators for telecom clocking

January 22, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Precision Devices Inc. has introduced the LV5 and PE5 series of LVDS and PECL (respectively) oscillators, for communication systems where low jitter and small size are required by chipset suppliers and system architecture.

In a miniature 3.2 x 5 mm ceramic package and available in frequencies up to 200 MHz, these products are available in standard commercial and industrial temperature ranges from -40 to +85°C. Stabilities can be held down to ±25ppm (depending on temperature range). The integrated jitter on these products is typically 0.2 psec (LV5) and 0.3psec (PE5) over the telecommunication industry standard carrier offset of 12 kHz to 20 MHz.

Precision Devices (PDI), is part of Avrio Technology Group, and makes precision engineered crystals, LC filters, crystal filters, clock oscillators, voltage controlled crystal oscillators (VCXOs), temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) and oven controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs). Avrio Technology Group is an international group of RF related companies;
