Abracon | Why ClearClock® Oscillators?

ClearClock® Oscillators for Next-Generation Technology

The ClearClock® family of oscillators offers a solution for the latest communication, cloud computing, storage, and RF applications. With their low power consumption and low jitter, these XO solutions can handle serial data rates beyond 56Gbps, making them a crucial component in today's fast-paced digital world.

The ClearClock® family includes PLL-based and third overtone solutions, all in compact package sizes. These oscillators stand out in the industry for their power-optimized performance and ability to meet the ever-increasing demands of modern technology.

For example, the AX7 series offers superior rms jitter performance (119 typ) while consuming only 130mW. It also features the widest factory configurable frequency range from 50MHz to 2.1GHz. Meanwhile, the third overtone ClearClock® solutions, such as the AK2, AX3, AK5, and AK7 series, offer industry-leading low power consumption for low noise differential oscillators.

ClearClock® oscillators are a must-have for any technology-driven application that demands high performance, low power consumption, and compact design.
