Guaranteed Ultra-Low Jitter 5x7mm XO’s Reduce Design Time in High Bandwidth Applications

150fs RMS max jitter for 156.25MHz output

Austin, TX (December 14, 2016)- Abracon Holdings LLC. (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of passive & electromechanical timing, synchronization, power, connectivity and RF components has released the ASG-ULJ family of oscillators featuring guaranteed ultra-low phase jitter of 100fs RMS and guaranteed maximum phase jitter of 150fs RMS for 156.25MHz output. Specifying maximum phase jitter removes uncertainty from end system hardware design, reduces clock tree troubleshooting time and speeds time to market in high data rate applications such as 10/40/100/400Gb Ethernet, 5G wireless infrastructure and 25Gbps to 56Gbps chip-to-chip or board-to-board interfaces used by FPGAs and advanced processors.

High performance oscillators targeting clocking applications that drive high bandwidth requirements are ideal for servers, PCI Express accelerator add-on cards, wireless backhaul, base stations, switches, routers, automated test equipment and MRI equipment. The explosive need for higher bandwidth requirements are typical within data centers, telecommunications infrastructure, test equipment and high end medical imaging.

“As part of our strategy to constantly deliver value to our customers, this family of leading performance oscillators directly targets the noise requirements of end equipment that supports the explosive growth of wireless and cloud bandwidth requirements. The ASG-ULJ product family is intended to bring advanced yet accessible clocking technology to these applications,” said Abracon Chief Operations Officer Mike Calabria.

The product family supports industry standard 6-pin 5x7mm footprint with LVPECL, LVDS or LVCMOS output format type. Featuring operation from 3.3V or 2.5V with supply current consumption below 40mA for LVCMOS, these high performance XOs consume no more power than standard performing devices. Operation from -40C to +85C with +/-50PPM total stability including aging is standard.

“We have seen first-hand how engineers grapple with the challenges of designing higher bandwidth into their end equipment. Oscillators with ultra-low jitter performance that are guaranteed to conserve their jitter budget reduce design time off the clocking solution and allow designers to focus on taking their core technology to revenue as soon as possible,” commented Juan Conchas, Abracon’s Director of Marketing.

Priced competitively, these oscillators range in frequency from 1 to 705.8MHz. Available frequencies are 156.25MHz, 190MHz, 705.8MHz, 100MHz, 125MHz and 114.285MHz for jitter attenuator applications.

Abracon’s Industry Leading 22nA Time Keeping Current Consumption Real Time Clock Maximizes Battery Life
AB1815, AB1805, AB0815, AB0805

AUSTIN, Tx. (November 28, 2016) Abracon Holdings, LLC. (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of passive & electromechanical timing, synchronization, power, connectivity and RF components announces a family of real time clock IC’s designed to maximize battery life and reduce overall battery requirements in wearables and Internet of Things applications. By reducing time-keeping current to an industry low of 22nA, this family of real time clocks enables years of operation from small coin cells or eliminates the need for super capacitors during short term hold-over requirements.

This family of RTC’s are highly integrated offering a variety of advanced time-keeping features that allow scalable current consumption from 14nA using internal RC mode up to 55nA when fully operating from an external 32.768kHz crystal. Advanced power management features such as a 1Ω power switch, VBAT switchover, system sleep manager for managing host processor wake/sleep states, external reset signal monitor, reset output generator, external interrupt monitor, programmable low battery detection threshold, and programmable analog voltage comparator.

For applications requiring long term holdover, the devices integrate a supercapacitor trickle charger with programmable charging current. Under short term hold-over of 20 minutes, the devices use a standard 22µF capacitor, eliminating the need for supercapacitors.

“Design engineers are under pressure to meet the size and battery life needs of new IoT, IIoT and wearable applications,” says Syed Raza, VP of Engineering with Abracon. “Considering that the real time clock is typically the only function that remains active 100% of the time, reduction in time-keeping current consumption translates directly into enhanced battery life or reduced battery size. Utilizing the lowest power RTC available can present a distinct head start when trying to address this design challenge.”

“Abracon’s strategic long term focus is to support end system designers with industry leading technology that addresses their most restrictive design challenges,” says Juan Conchas, Abracon’s Director of Marketing. “By significantly reducing time-keeping current consumption, this family of RTC’s is needed by the next generation of battery powered systems.”

These devices are available in a compact 3mm x 3mm 16-pin QFN, feature SPI or I2C interfaces and operate from -40°C to 85°C. They are available from stock through Abracon’s global distributors.
