Vectron International, a leader in the design and manufacture of
Precision Oscillators and Timing Solutions for Communication,
Industrial, Military and Space applications, today announced its new
VS-501 High Frequency, Low Noise VCSO. The VS-501 provides low phase
noise clock signals to high speed data converter applications. This
product will be showcased in Hall B5, Stand 237 at the Electronica 2012
Show in Munich, Germany from November 13-16th 2012.
Data converters are evolving to reach higher speeds and enabling
architectural evolution in the way that high throughput data is
processed in the digital domain. High speed Digital to Analog Converters
(DAC) can now output RF signals directly, removing the need for analog
up-conversion stages and allowing for true software defined radio
architectures. High speed ADCs are making coherent optical
communications a reality.
"Utilizing data conversion on high speed signals, whether in wireless
base stations, optical communications, test and measurement or military
communications, requires extremely low phase noise, low jitter clock
signals in order to guarantee the highest levels of signal quality,"
says Greg Smolka, Vice President of Global Sales at Vectron. "Current
clock generation schemes do not provide sufficiently low phase noise to
clock the next generation of high speed ADCs and DACs. The VS-501
bridges that gap."
The VS-501 provides ultra low phase noise performance in the 800MHz to
2.5GHz range with noise floors as low as -164dBc/H and integrated phase
jitter at 12fs rms in the 12kHz to 20MHz band. In addition to its low
phase noise VCSO products, Vectron also offers customers low phase noise
OCXOs and VCXOs, along with innovative clock path technology including
TCXOs, XOs and jitter attenuators that provide ultra low jitter timing
