IQD Introduces Small Low Phase Noise Oscillators

IQD, a subsidiary of the Würth Elektronik eiSos Group, has launched its newest low phase noise oscillators, the IQXO-408 & IQXO-455, available in industry standard packages of 2.5 x 2.0 mm and 3.2 x 2.5 mm. The new CMOS clock oscillators have a close-in phase noise as low as -113 dBc/Hz @ 10 Hz and far-out phase noise as low as -172 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz. The low phase noise oscillators are available at either 1.8 V, 2.5 V or 3.3 V with phase jitter down to 40 fs RMS (over 12 kHz to 5 MHz).

As application requirements drive the need for greater data rates, more oscillator devices with ultra-low phase noise are required. This type of application is especially prevalent in today's connected world. Applications include fibre transceivers, gigabit Ethernet and 5G base stations.

Common applications of the IQXO-408 & IQXO-455 include high data rate applications, IoT, 5G, PLL, frequency multiplier, clock recovery, gigabit Ethernet, fibre, studio grade and high-end consumer audio equipment.
