Quad Frequency Family
Silicon Laboratories announces the Si530 and Si550 families of oscillators (XOs) and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCXOs) for applications up to 1.4 GHz. These product families include quad frequency XO and VCXO devices. With DSPLL® technology, the company is able to move frequency control and tuning from a complex resonator to a single CMOS IC, enabling the Si530 and Si550 families to deliver total frequency stability over time and temperature. The families leverage the frequency synthesis capability of a mixed-signal IC to eliminate complex materials processing steps required to frequency tune traditional SAW and crystal-based implementations.
