Epson presents its new lineup of differential output crystal oscillators lineup


Seiko Epson Corporation has a new lineup of differential output crystal oscillators (SPXO) that achieve low phase jitter2 in the fundamental mode3 and come in a tiny 2.5 x 2.0 x 0.74 mm package. The new lineup includes the SG2520EGN and SG2520EHN, as well as the SG2520VGN and SG2520VHN, all of which provide improved frequency stability. Epson has begun shipping SPXOs with frequencies up to 212.5 MHz. Epson begins volume production of SPXOs in frequencies from 212.5 MHz to 500 MHZ in March 2021.

Telecommunications network traffic and capacity continue to increase with the introduction of 5th-generation telecommunication systems (5G) and the evolution of mobile networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and data centers. At the same time, the noise level permissible in communication signals is lower, and clocks used in network equipment must operate at high-frequency and have low phase jitter. Optical communication modules that connect network devices are becoming faster and smaller, and clocks with a frequency tolerance of ± 20 x 10-6 or less are needed for transmissions at ultra-high speeds of 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps and distances of 80 km or more.

Like Epson’s earlier comparable products, the SG3225EEN and SG3225VEN, the new SPXOs offer frequencies up to 500 MHz and low phase jitter. In addition, they are equipped with a compact oscillator IC developed by Epson that compensates the temperature coefficient of frequency of the built-in HFF crystal oscillator4. The use of this IC enabled Epson to shrink the footprint of the SPXOs by 63% and their cubic volume by 44% compared to the previous products. Furthermore, they demonstrate superior frequency stability, with a frequency tolerance at -40 to +105˚C that is half that of the predecessor for SG2520EGN and SG2520VGN and 40% for SG2520EHN and SG2520VHN. The new series has the ideal characteristics for small optical communication modules. As a leader in quartz crystal devices, Epson will continue to provide crystal device products required in electronics and social infrastructure.
