Vectron new Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillator

Vectron new Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillator

Designed to support high speed data converters and 100G coherent receivers

The VX−402 quad frequency VCXO (Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillator) is a high frequency, low jitter solution providing ~109fs rms jitter (@2GHz) in the 12kHz to 20MHz integration bandwidth at a frequency range of 800MHz to 3.0GHz with up to four selectable frequencies. This new design provides our customers with greater flexibility while maintaining the excellent jitter performance required in optical network applications.


  • Frequency Range: 800MHz to 3.0GHz
  • Up to four selectable frequencies
  • Typical Jitter: 109fsec rms, 12kHz to 20MHz
  • Supply: 3.3V
  • Output Logic: Clipped Sinewave balanced
  • Package: 13 x 20 mm


  • High Speed ADC's
  • 100G, 200G Coherent Receivers
