Fox Electronics offers a new line of Application Specific XpressO oscillators optimized for Fibre Channel configurations. As with all models in the 3.3 V XpressO line, the Fibre Channel oscillators are off-the-shelf, pre-configured to precise application-specific requirements in an industry standard 7 mm x 5 mm package. According to the company, XpressO technology offers fast delivery of low jitter, small package size and multiple frequency and output options at a low cost. XpressO oscillators use a family of proprietary application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) with a key focus on noise reduction. These XO oscillators offer a frequency stability of ±50 ppm with tighter stabilities available upon request and are available in 106.25 MHz, 159.375 MHz and 212.50 MHz models. HCMOS and LVPECL outputs are available on the 106.25 MHz model, LVPECL for the 159.375 MHz model, while LVPECL and LVDS outputs are available on the 212.50 MHz models. These new XpressO oscillators offer a tri-state enable/disable feature, allowing the user to turn the output on and off. Output enable/disable time is less than 100 nS.
