VCXO Squeezes into Small Cells

July 14, 2015
A compact voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) provides fundamental frequencies from 100 to 250 MHz.

A compact voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO), which was exhibited at the recent IEEE IMS, saves space in small communications cells, such as femtocells. The RoHS-compliant VCXO provides HCMOS or LVPECL outputs, and handles fundamental frequencies from 100 to 250 MHz. The miniature VCXO can be supplied in surface-mount housings measuring just 7.0 × 5.0 mm or 5.0 × 3.2 mm. Typical jitter performance is 0.5 ps for HCMOS units and 0.2 ps for LVPECL units. Standard frequencies include 100, 122.88, 125, and 156.25 MHz.
