CTS Ultra-low Jitter Clock Oscillators

Low Jitter Clock Portfolio Expansion

CTS Corporation announces three new models added to its family of high-frequency low jitter Clock for standard frequencies between 125MHz and 170MHz. Model 633 [3.2×2.5mm] features clock rates between 10MHz through 220MHz and phase jitter performance less than 500fs throughout the frequency range. All three models are available with LVPECL or LVDS outputs, typical stability options of ±20, ±25 and ±50ppm and +2.5V or +3.3V operation.

In addition to this new product release, two existing models are being upgraded: The frequency range for Model 637 and Model 653 will be offered at frequencies as low as 10MHz, while the phase jitter for Model 653 was improved to a level reaching 500fs maximum over its frequency range.

All models within CTS’ low jitter clock portfolio provide the design engineer a low cost, miniature size solution, along with high-performance capabilities suitable for complex electronic systems’ requirements. The new clock models support a wide array of market segments; covering infrastructure telecommunication networking, server applications, test and measurement, medical test equipment and much more; delivering superior phase jitter performance and a high level of frequency stability.

Standard product features, common market applications, and new series platforms are summarized below. Please refer to individual data sheets on our website to see more performance characteristics.
