New ultra-low phase noise LVPECL clock oscillator from Crystek provides -162 dBc/Hz noise floor

Macrovision, Inc.

Fort Myers, FL – Crystek Corporation has launched the CCPD-575, a new Ultra-Low Phase Noise LVPECL Oscillator providing a -162 dBc/Hz noise floor. Compact and powerful, the CCPD-575 has an industry leading phase noise for an LVPECL oscillator – at least 15 dB lower phase noise than most LVPECL oscillators on the market today. Close-in phase noise is also excellent @ -90 dBc/Hz for the 100 MHz variant. This overall ultra-low phase noise translates to a typical phase jitter of 85 fS RMS (12 kHz to 20 MHz).

The extremely low phase noise performance is very useful in applications such as: Digital Video, SONET/SDH/DWDM, Storage Area Networks, Broadband Access, Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet.

The Crystek CCPD-575 LVPECL Oscillator is made in the U.S.A. and available from Crystek’s stocking distributors. For pricing details, contact Crystek Corporation.
