Integrated Device Technology, Inc., has expanded its comprehensive timing portfolio with the introduction of two new families of crystal oscillators. The IDT XU and XL families offer unparalleled features and flexibility at an industry-leading price-vs.-performance ratio. The high-performance, low-phase jitter crystal oscillators are customizable for frequencies from 16 kHz to 1.5 GHz, with 300 fs RMS phase jitter, and are available in HCMOS, LVPECL, LVDS, and HCSL outputs.
To shorten time to market, IDT is offering fast delivery of its custom-frequency oscillators. Engineers used to waiting up to months from other vendors can expect to receive the new IDT crystal oscillators in two weeks or less.
“The XU and XL crystal oscillators are IDT’s response to the increasingly stringent jitter requirements resulting from higher data throughput in serial IO technologies,” said Dave Shepard, vice president and general manager of IDT’s Timing and RF Division. “Our new oscillators offer designers a reliable and economical solution to address the growing challenges of frequency control.”
The new timing devices feature a typical jitter value of 300 fs RMS with a maximum value of 400 fs, integrated over 12 kHz to 20 MHz. They are ideal for such applications as networking, communications, data I/O, storage and servers.
The XU and XL families deliver varying throughput speeds to match the requirements of individual designs. The XU family is offered in LVPECL, LVDS, HCSL and HCMOS versions, with operating voltages of 3.3 V, 2.5 V or 1.8 V. These devices offer frequency stabilities as low as +/- 20 ppm with a temperature range as wide as -40C to 85C in industry standard packages – 7 x 5 mm, 5 x 3.2 mm.
The XL family is offered in LVPECL, LVDS and HCMOS versions, with operating voltages of 3.3 V or 2.5 V. The XL family offers frequency stabilities as low as +/- 20 ppm with temperature range as wide as -40C to 85C in industry standard packages – 7 x 5 mm, 5 x 3.2 mm and 3.2 x 2.5 mm.
