Raltron : Low jitter VCSO bypasses multiplication stages

Raltron Electronics Corp.has announced the series VSO9900A voltage controlled SAW device based oscillator (VCSO) offering a very low jitter at high frequencies such as 622.08MHz

Using a Surface Acoustic Wave device the VSO9900A bypasses the many multiplication stages needed to attain a high frequency with standard crystal based designs and operates directly at frequencies such as 622.08MHz or higher.

The VSO9900A series from Raltron is particularly suitable for applications like SONET/SDH, Base Stations, High speed data transfer, Optical transmission and all kinds of phase locked loops (PLL’s). The family has been designed for a frequency range from 400MHz to 1GHz with particular emphasis on typical frequencies used in the optical transmission domain (622.08MHz, 644.531MHz, 669.327MHz,etc.).

The new line of VCSO ’s is offered in a compact 5 x 7 x 2.5 mm package, producing a jitter as low as 0.100 ps-rms within a bandwidth of 12 KHz to 20MHz; phase noise of -150 dBc /Hz at 10KHz offset from carrier and an absolute pull range (APR) of ±100ppm.The VSO9900A series operates on a supply voltage of 3.3V and features LVDS or LVPECL complementary outputs as well as an Enable/Disable function.

Priced at $ 28.00/each for 1000 pieces the VSO9900A is available in 8 weeks ARO for production quantities. Samples are available in 2-4 weeks ARO. For detailed data sheets, sample requests and for specific price and delivery quotations please contact Raltron headquarters or visit us on the web:
