Fast data transfer is critical to the success of applications requiring high-speed networks like autonomous driving, telemedicine, and virtual presence. The demand for high-speed data transfer continues to grow at a tremendous rate, especially with the introduction of new cellular advancements such as 5G — a new standard that promises to be 20 times faster than 4G with peak data rates of 20 Gbps. Fulfilling these 5G promises will require the production and installation of millimeter-wave devices, microcells, and many miles of new optical fiber networks.
A clock oscillator is a fundamental building block of any high-speed network it must be rock steady with little jitter or phase noise. Clock oscillators produced with the latest manufacturing techniques and higher levels of precision enable the next generation of optical digital signal processors (DSPs) to meet the network demands of the new 5G standard, as well as other emerging high-speed networks.
In this video from Raltron, learn more about the key functions of clock oscillators and how they can be optimized for optical DSP applications.
