A globally preferred, leading supplier of frequency control and magnetic components, Abracon Corporation introduces its ABFT series of High Performance Frequency Translators/Jitter Attenuators.

Abracon provides its customers with high quality products, competitive pricing, timely delivery, reliable engineering and technical support plus production flexibility around the world.

“The ABFT solution is an ideal choice for high-end communication applications where jitter attenuation is of critical importance and there’s a need to be phase and frequency coherent to the 10MHz Master Reference,” explains Syed Raza, Dir. of Engineering.

A globally preferred, leading supplier of frequency control and magnetic components, Abracon Corporation introduces its ABFT series of High Performance Frequency Translators/Jitter Attenuators.

“The ABFT solution is an ideal choice for high-end communication applications where jitter attenuation is of critical importance and there’s a need to be phase and frequency coherent to the 10MHz Master Reference,” explains Syed Raza, Director of Engineering at Abracon Corporation.

The ABFT device is currently available with 20MHz or 40MHz LVCMOS output in a small 5*7*2mm, low cost - RoHS Compliant package. Developed by Abracon’s Advanced Engineering Group, this device significantly attenuates close to the carrier jitter of the input reference, yielding a typical output jitter of less than 400fs over 12kHz to 20MHz BW @ 20MHz or 40MHz carrier.

The ABFT series is designed to accommodate sufficient internal pull, ensuring fully compliant field operation for >10 years. Utilizing innovative architecture, this solution features exceptional Phase Noise characteristics, low current consumption and fast lock-time to the 10MHz Master Clock.

Standard applications of the ABFT series include: Frequency Translation and Jitter Attenuation, Networking, SONET/SDH, ATM, WiMax/WLAN, Computing, DSLAM, DSLAR, Access Nodes, GSM, CDMA Base Terminal Stations, Cable Modem Head-End and General Timing Applications; requiring a high frequency, low noise, low cost, small profile SMT solution.

Key features of the ABFT series of Frequency Translators/Jitter Attenuators include:

  •     20MHz or 40MHz output option
  •     -40ºC to +85ºC standard operating temperature range
  •     Worst-case track ability of ±25.0 ppb of a high precision 10MHz reference (OCXO)
  •     Typical rms jitter of < 400fs @ 20MHz carrier over 12kHz to 20MHz BW
  •     1.20ns maximum Tr & Tf @ no load
  •     Space saving, 5.0 x 7.0 x 2.0 mm SMT Package

The ABFT series is currently in stock with Abracon's Global Distribution partners at a competitive distribution resale of less than $17 @ 10k quantities.
