IQD: MEMS Oscillators at Reduced Lead Times
MEMS frequency controllers.
Somerset, UK — IQD has introduced a newly developed high frequency MEMS oscillator. The new IQMS-900 series MEMS oscillator is available in a 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, typically 0.7ps at 200MHz. Two supply voltages are available, 3.3V 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.

The IQMS-900 range is 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 — the fast rise and fall times contribute to this. Typical applications include Fibre Channel, Ethernet 10G, HDMI, SATA/SAS & USB3. The new MEMS products can be manufactured on short lead-times of typically 1 to 6 weeks, depending on volumes. These devices are RoHs-compliant and are available on tape-and-reel for production purposes.
