Renesas Electronics Corporation expanded its robust timing solutions portfolio with the ProXO+ family of compact, ultra-low noise, temperature-controlled clock oscillators. The high-accuracy, high frequency, differential oscillators are best suited for fiber optic transceiver modules, accelerator cards, smart NIC cards and networking equipment applications. 

“The ProXO+ family delivers on all counts, offering tight frequency stability, great jitter performance and high output frequency, which are critical features for communications, cloud and compute markets,” said Bobby Matinpour, vice president of Timing Products at Renesas. “The ProXO+ family’s high level of programmability also enables the use of a single device for numerous designs, simplifying the BOM, sourcing and inventory management.”

Key Features of the ProXO+ Family                                          

  • Frequency stability ±3 ppm from -40C to +85C temperature range 
  • Programmable frequencies up to 2.1 GHz 
  • 135 fs typical phase jitter (12 KHz to 20 MHz)
  • 3.2 x 2.5 mm in an 8-pin plastic package 

In addition to the new ProXO+ family, Renesas is expanding the popular original ProXO XF 2.5 x 2.0 mm device to include two new industry-standard 3.2 x 2.5 mm and 5.0 x 3.2 mm plastic packages.

The ProXO+ family can be combined with Renesas’ complementary clock buffers, power and microcontroller offerings to create comprehensive solutions for a variety of applications, such as the Xilinx Kintex-7 Power and Timing, the CC-Link IE TSN and the system on module (SoM) solution with RZ/G2E. Renesas’ Winning Combinations are vetted solutions engineered to help customers accelerate designs and get to market faster.  

Renesas provides the industry’s broadest timing portfolio to support the complete clock tree. As the market leader in silicon timing with a long history of bringing cutting-edge technologies to the markets, Renesas offers the only “one-stop-shop” for timing solutions, offering expertise and products from full-featured system solutions to simple clock tree building-block devices.
