IQD unveils ultra high frequency ocxo reference clock

IQD's new IQOV-150 series ocxo is designed to satisfy the growing demand for low phase noise reference clocks for a/d and d/a conversion, especially for very fast measurements and high speed data transfer.

Available at frequencies up to 1.2GHz, the new design is based on an internal high frequency ocxo combined with additional frequency multiplication and special filtering to achieve low phase noise down to -160dBc/Hz at 100kHz. The module is housed in an industry standard IEC C008 5-pin Euro package measuring 36 x 27mm. Frequency stability is ±0.5ppm over the operating temperature range of -20 to 60°C, along with a pulling capability of ±3ppm minimum. Working off a supply voltage of 12V, the IQOV-150 offers Sinewave output of 0 to 13dBm into 50ohms. It is suitable for applications which require a very high reference clock frequency together with low phase noise.
