100Mhz crystal
 
I am collecting the parts for Elso's async-clock and I am having a little trouble finding the 100Mhz crystal. Where can I buy one or can someone sell me one?

Thanks,
P. Sugano

you can do it with a lower freq xtal
 
if you overdrive a xtal oscillator you generate a series of harmonics -- just use a bandpass filter at 100MHz for a crystal whose frequency is an integer dividend of 100 MHz. (This is how I used to operate 50Mhz (6 meters) ham transmission with an 8.333 MHz crystal.

or you can buy an XO for the frequency in question.

I have bought some off this place :

Not cheap though.

They're probably made in your country and travelled to Holland and back again ;)

The 100Mhz frequency is somewhat arbitrary, Kusonoki used a 50 MHz crystal, and Elso himself once said that any frequency > 45 Mhz could be suitable.

In my ASR I use a 80 MHz canned oscillator from a old server motherboard, but maybe I'll try different frequencies as I have several of them available.

Doing a serch for lowjitter XOs, one soon finds that the low jitter ones all hacve ECL or PECL outputs which appears lower than TTL.

What precisely are the differences?


:confused:

ECL does not saturate, so it is devoid of problems like ground bounce that saturated stuff has. It is always on, and so the output swing will always be a small fraction of the rail voltage.

Thanks Jocko; what then is comlementary PECL? And can these ECL and PECL chips be used directly in place of TTL for clockling transports and adc chips?

Re ECL
 
As good a place to start as any.
