IDT Samples Low-Jitter VCSO for 40/100G Boards

Integrated Device Technology introduced a low-jitter Voltage Controlled Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Oscillator (VCSO) for high-end optical networking and telecom applications. The device, which meets jitter requirements of 40G and 100G board designs, incorporates an analog frequency multiplier and single-ended RF output with jitter at less than 270 femtoseconds root mean square (rms) integrated across the 20kHz to 20MHz frequency band. It is available with an output frequency in the 1.5GHz to 2.1GHz range, providing customers a high frequency reference clock with low-jitter, low-noise performance.
