Abracon's new AK2, AX3, AK5, AK7, AK2A, and AK3A ClearClock XO series are designed to meet the needs of compact applications such as optical modules, active cables, and small networking and storage gear while maintaining the world’s highest data rates in excess of 10Gbps and up to 100/400Gbps.
This next generation of ClearClock is ideal for applications requiring carrier frequencies in the 100MHz to 200MHz range. Most network processors and advanced CPUs require ultra-low jitter for connectivity greater than 10 gigabits per second and up to 100Gbps. The AK2, AX3, AK5, AK7, AK2A, and AK3A devices utilize a quieter third overtone architecture that avoids phase-locked loop (PLL) based multiplication, reducing overall power consumption far below other high-performance XO alternatives.
The third overtone ClearClock solutions provide the best combination of ultra-low sub-100fs jitter performance in a miniature footprint. Typically consuming 30mW of power at the lowest operating voltage of 1.8V, the third-overtone ClearClock™ devices deliver industry-leading low power consumption for low noise differential oscillators.
