A New Ultra - Small Complete PLL Solution from Vectron International
Vectron International (VI) has introduced a new ultra - small VCXO based phase-locked
loop (PLL) solution designed to simplify a wide variety of clock recovery and data retiming,
frequency translation, clock smoothing and clock switching applications.
The CD-700 features
a phase-locked loop ASIC with a quartz stabilized VCXO for
superior stability and jitter performance. The new product offers a flexible
solution that reduces design time, increases circuit reliability and reduces board
space. The input data rates range from 8 kb/s to 65 Mb/s and the output has a
tri-state option. In addition, the supply voltage can be either 3.3V or 5V.
The device is hermetically sealed in a ceramic SMD package measuring only 5.0 x 7.5 x 2.0mm.
The small size, versatile functionality and high performance of the CD-700 make
it ideal for various applications in DWDM, Switching, Wireless Basestation, ATM,
SONET/SDH, xDSL, Network Communication, Digital audio/video and PBX systems.
The Vectron International group designs, manufactures and markets frequency
generation and control products using the very latest techniques in both standard
crystal and surface acoustic wave (SAW) based designs from DC to microwave frequencies.
Products include crystals and crystal oscillators; SAW filters and components; and
clock and data recovery products used in telecommunication and data communication
