Vectron International Announces Low Phase Noise Voltage Controlled Oscillator
Vectron International, a leader in the design and manufacture of Precision Oscillators and Timing Solutions for Communication, Industrial, Military and Space applications, today announced its new VX-705 Low Phase Noise Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCXO). The VX-705 is ideal for demanding clock distribution applications in wireless communications, test and measurement, audio/video broadcast and medical equipment. This product will be showcased in Hall B5, Stand 237 at the Electronica 2012 Show in Munich, Germany from November 13-16th 2012.
Distributed systems such as a network of remote radio heads communicating with a host base station, create new jitter and noise management challenges for the designer. Synchronizing the functions of distributed systems requires a designer to find a way to recover frequency or phase information after it has traveled over a noisy link, such as optical fiber that can add jitter to the recovered clock.
"Narrow bandwidth phase locked loops are used in distributed systems to recover reference frequencies, which requires the VCXO in the loop to have the best possible close in phase noise to allow the loop to clean out any additive noise that the interface introduces." says Mario Saucedo, General Manager of Standard Oscillator Product Segment at Vectron. "The VX-705 provides best in class close in phase noise performance by combining Vectron's advanced crystal processing expertise with custom ASIC technology."
With phase noise as low as -68dBc/Hz at a 10Hz offset, the VX-705 is ideal for supporting high performance jitter attenuation circuits. In addition to low phase noise VCXOs, Vectron also offers customers innovative clock path technology including OCXOs TCXOs, XOs, VCSOs and jitter attenuators that provide ultra low noise timing solutions.
