Austin, Texas – Abracon, LLC (Abracon), The Heartbeat of the IoT®, a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronization, RF, connectivity and power solutions, announces the jitter- and stability-optimized ASGTX5 series of factory-programmable oscillators.

The ASGTX5 series combines high-frequency capability with a small 5.0 x 3.2 mm footprint to target high-stability applications in networking and communications that require compact component solutions. Designed to meet +/-3ppm over a broad -40 °C to 85 °C temperature range, these devices meet Stratum 4 clocking requirements used in edge networking equipment.

“Networking equipment requires stable clocking to improve lock times, reduce holdover drift and improve synchronization,” said Abracon’s marketing director, Juan Conchas. “Combining tight stability, small footprint and high-frequency generation offers excellent benefits for communications infrastructure and enables the next level of performance.”

The series is also an extension of Abracon’s precision-timing portfolio and compliments Abracon’s other products designed for networking and professional audio/video applications. These low-noise devices can improve phase locked loop (PLL) lock time and holdover performance in broadcast and professional video applications.

Factory configurable to output frequencies from 15MHz to 2.1GHz, these oscillators support LVPECL, LVDS, HCSL or CML output logic types with voltage options down to 1.8V. Output enable can be configured for any combination of pin 1 or pin 2 and active high or active low functionality. The ASGTX5’s design flexibility is important in applications that require backwards compatibility with specific pinout or firmware combinations.

The ASGTX5 series is in stock at Abracon’s major distributors. View inventory.
