Miniature PECL and LVDS oscillators target telecom clocking applications

January 22, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Precision Devices Inc., a member of the Avrio Technology Group, LLC., has introduced the LV5 and PE5 series of LVDS and PECL (respectively) oscillators.

These oscillators are ideally suited for communication systems where low jitter and small size are required by chipset suppliers and system architecture.

The LV5 and PE5 series come in a miniature 3.2 mm x 5 mm ceramic package and are 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 ps (LV5) and 0.3 ps (PE5) over the telecommunication industry standard carrier offset of 12 kHz to 20 MHz.

"The addition of the smaller package to PDI's high performance oscillator offering is further evidence of our commitment to the commercial marketplace", according to Tom Sokol, Senior Vice President of Global Sales. "These products complement our existing 5 mm x 7 mm and 9 mm x 14 mm offerings. They are in production and available from stock to 5 weeks standard lead time."
