Euroquartz is exhibiting its latest ranges of frequency control products at Electronica. Highlights include recently launched high speed current steering logic (HCSL) versions of the company’s ultra-low phase jitter EQJF clock oscillator range, ultra-low power, fast start-up, high shock resistance oscillators from Statek Inc. and a range of switchable crystal oscillators offering users the ability to provide four different frequencies.
Offering a range of frequencies from 50 to 700MHz, ultra-low phase jitter EQJF clock oscillators with HCSL outputs deliver a less “noisy” solution compared with static logic types, a major benefit for mixed low voltage signal processing and essential in applications such as optical communications, PCI-Express and Intel chipsets etc. With phase jitter of 150fs typical, 300fs maximum, this new generation of oscillators is produced in the UK and available for delivery in one to two weeks. HCSL offers the fastest switching speeds with power consumption – at 94mA typical, 115mA maximum – lying between LVCS and LVPECL types.
Also on show is Statek’s CXOLHG oscillator offering ultra-low power, fast start-up and high shock resistance characteristics in a surface-mount package measuring just 3.2 x 1.5 x 0.95mm. Features include frequency output of 32.768kHz and typical low power consumption of 1µA at 3.3V supply voltage. This is comparable with a tuning fork design while fast start-up time of 3ms typical and tight frequency stability are as good as those obtainable with AT-cut crystal designs. The new oscillator is also capable of withstanding shock up to 30,000g and above, significantly higher than that achieved by tuning fork designs.
Euroquartz is also showing its latest range of switchable crystal oscillators offering users the ability to provide four different frequencies. The new QuikXO HC_JF series oscillators are available in frequencies from 15 to 2100MHz with a choice of outputs including LVCMOS, LVPECL, LVDS and CML differential.
