Abracon expands its line of high performance ClearClock™ oscillators with the addition of the brand new AK2A and AK3A-series oscillators. This new line of ultra-low jitter SMD oscillators from Abracon are designed to provide stable and accurate clock signals for a variety of high-speed applications such as optical transceivers and modules, data centers, network switches and gateways, and 100G/200G/400G/800G ethernet. The AK2A and AK3A series deliver reliable and efficient oscillations while maintaining 25 ppm stability over a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and 15 ppm stability over -20°C to +70°C.

These new ClearClock™ oscillators are ideal for applications that require a carrier frequency between 100 and 212/5 MHz and need lane rates to 400 Gbps. With package sizes that support industry-standard footprints of 2.5 x 2.0 mm and 3.2 x 2.5 mm, the AK2A and AK3A oscillators offer space saving designs with substantially increased jitter performance compared to previous models. These oscillators also support various differential outputs which allows them to be easily integrated into a large range of systems. Third overtone ClearClock™ technology mitigates phase locked loop-based multiplication, eliminating the chance of reduced overall power consumption.

"The new AK2A and AK3A series oscillators couple a small package size with extremely low RMS jitter performance of 83 fs," explained Roger Burns, product line manager. "This combination sets them apart from their previous iterations which were only available in larger package sizes, making these new ClearClock™ oscillators ideally suited for optical transceivers, data centers, storage and servers, networking switches and gateways, 100G/200G/400G/800G Ethernet, fiber channel and PCIe end-applications."

Abracon's newly expanded line of ultra-low jitter ClearClock™ oscillators are in-stock and available now.
