From Pericom Semiconductor Corp. comes a family of ASSP crystal oscillators (ASSP XO) for frequencies ranging from 2MHz to 159MHz.

Pericom's new family of ASSP XOs addresses specific reference clock frequencies for popular serial connectivity standards, with low jitter and power, and in the technology optimized for that specific application. The new XO family eliminates critical trade-offs between performance, delivery times and cost when selecting and qualifying oscillators in a new design, especially for fast time to market projects. By offering the most popular frequencies as an 'off the shelf' product, Pericom can reduce design cycle time with best of class performance.

"Pericom is first to introduce the concept of ASSP for crystal oscillators used in high growth market segments, enabling customers to quickly design with the best solution," said Kay Annamalai, Pericom's senior director of marketing for timing products. "We combine our patented design expertise, vertical integration within our own factory, and key chipset partner reference designs to provide a unique value proposition that goes beyond existing solutions."

The new ASSP XO family uses patented Pericom XP clock circuit technology for 150MHz and above, to provide added reliability compared to overtone solutions. In addition, the oscillators use bulk acoustic wave crystal devices that offer better stability as compared to SAW- or MEMS-based designs. This tight stability is important for applications such as Wi-Fi. With phase jitter The ASSP XO family is comprised of 19 products addressing fast growing markets of networking, storage, ultra mobility, digital media and security. Prices range from $0.50 to $2.95 in 10K OEM quantities. Products are available now, and in stock for immediate sampling and pilot production quantities, with production quantities in just three to four weeks.
