In our testing of the same production 6G SAS HBA design with both the DSC1122 Silicon MEMS oscillator and a 3rd overtone crystal
oscillator, we found that the use of the DSC1122 resulted in equivalent system performance with a bit lower measured transmitter random jitter and total jitter," said Mike Engbretson, Chief Technology Engineer of Granite River Labs.
These solutions provide a strong alternative to expensive and inflexible SAW oscillators and overtone crystal
Epson's HFF crystal technology is more reliable than legacy 3rd overtone crystals
which are commonly used for these frequencies.
