AUSTIN, TX – Abracon, LLC (Abracon), The Heartbeat of the IoT®, a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronization, RF, connectivity and power solutions announced the AX7 ClearClock™ series of oscillators with typical 119fs of RMS phase jitter, optimized to save power and address frequencies up to 2.1GHz. These oscillators target high performance applications that require the next generation of low jitter clocking, enabling extremely high serial data rates up to 56Gbps and beyond.
Cloud computing and other high performance computing (HPC) applications demand CPU, FPGA, network processors and communications chipsets to scale up data rates as the system improves power consumption. Despite reaching incredibly low RMS phase jitter of 110fs to 125fs (typical, depending on output frequency) ClearClock™ is optimized for low power consumption. Previous generations of low jitter oscillators with less performance consumed as much as 75% higher power compared to ClearClock™ under equivalent operating conditions. This series of oscillators present a necessary improvement in power consumption while also extending the operating frequency range to 2.1GHz, a 40% improvement from previous generations. The ClearClock™ series also offers excellent spurious suppression.
“The goal of power conservation while enhancing performance in cloud computing, networking and storage applications drives the need for innovation in timing technology,” says Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing with Abracon. “These oscillators deliver state of the art performance in both output frequency range and power consumption optimization, while meeting the low noise needs of an industry insatiably hungry for more bandwidth and higher data rates.”
“Higher data rate requires lower noise performance,” comments Syed Raza, VP of Engineering with Abracon. “With processors, CPU and FPGA data transceivers driving 25Gbps to 56Gbps and soon 100Gbps data buses, the need for superior noise performance already exists.”
An additional benefit of the ClearClock™ series is shorter production lead time. Fast factory samples quickens time-to-market with a variety of available configurations including OE functionality, output frequency up to 2.1GHz, VDD operation of 1.8V, 2.5V or 3.3V and differential output logic types of LVPECL and LVDS and power conserving CML and HCSL. The ClearClock™ AX7 series operates over -40°C to 85°C temperature range with ALL Inclusive stability of either ±50ppm or ±100ppm. These oscillators are available in an industry standard 5x7mm footprint. The most common frequencies and output logic types are in stock at Abracon global distribution channel. Short lead time for samples quantities in any configuration are available now.
