High Freq. MEMS Oscillator from IQD
MEMS oscillators.
Palo Alto, CA — IQD is introducing a newly developed high frequency MEMS oscillator. The new IQMS-900 series MEMS oscillator is available in an exceptionally wide frequency range from 1MHz up to 800MHz. The new model can be factory programmed with either a LVDS (low voltage differential source) or LVPECL (low voltage positive emitter coupled logic) output.

The plastic packaged IQMS-900 series is available in two sizes: either a 7 x 5mm or the increasingly popular 5 x 3.2mm. Due to its MEMS technology design, phase jitter is low, being typically 0.7ps at 200MHz. Two supply voltages are available, 3.3 and 2.5V. Frequency stabilities can be specified at either ±10ppm over an operating temperature range of 0 to +70°C or ±15ppm over -40 to +85°C.

MEMS technology is based upon CMOS process techniques and as such can be produced on standard production lines in foundries that are ordinarily used to produce standard or custom integrated circuits. This in turn lends itself to being able to produce product in vast quantities at an economic rate.

The IQMS-900 range is eminently suitable for incorporation into infrastructure equipment where it will provide very accurate timing processes coupled with the ability to drive the very latest high-speed processors that will enable the transfer of high data rates — enabled by the fast rise and fall times. Typical applications include Fibre Channel, Ethernet 10G, HDMI, SATA/SAS & USB3. The MEMS products can be manufactured on short lead-times of typically 1 to 6 weeks, depending on volume. The devices are RoHS-compliant and are available on tape-and-reel.
