Fox Electronics expands its XpressO oscillator series to include a 2.5 V LVPECL VCXO version with an industry standard 7 × 5 mm package size and a frequency range from 0.75 MHz through 1 GHz. The FVXO-PC72 oscillators are suitable for use in any application that requires an oscillator, including SONET, Ethernet, storage area networks, broadband access, microprocessors, DSPs, FPGAs, industrial controllers, test and measurement equipment; and fiber channel applications. These oscillators and VCXOs use a proprietary family of proprietary application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) with a key focus on noise reduction technologies as well as significantly lower levels of jitter. These oscillators use a third-order Delta Sigma Modulator (DSM) to reduce noise to levels comparable to traditional bulk quartz and SAW oscillators.
