IQD, a subsidiary of the Würth Elektronik eiSos Group, launched its newest low phase noise oscillators, the IQXO-408 and IQXO-455, offered in industry-standard packages of 2.5mm x 2mm and 3.2mm x 2.5mm. The new CMOS clock oscillators can perform with a close-in phase noise as low as -113dBc/Hz @ 10Hz and far-out phase noise as low as -175dBc/Hz @ 100kHz (3.3V, 20MHz, IQXO-408). The low phase noise oscillators are provided at either 1.8V, 2.5V or 3.3V with a phase jitter down to 40fs RMS (over 12kHz to 5MHz).
As application requirements drive the need for higher data rates, more oscillator devices with ultra-low phase noise are needed. This type of application is particularly prevalent in today’s connected world. Applications cover fibre transceivers, gigabit Ethernet and 5G base stations.
Common applications of the devices include high data rate applications, IoT, 5G, PLL, frequency multiplier, clock recovery, fibre, gigabit Ethernet, studio-grade and high-end consumer audio equipment.
