Ethernet has emerged as the primary computer networking technology for local area networks. Standardized as IEEE 802.3, Ethernet has twisted-pair and fiber optic versions.
The Ethernet physical layer has several magnitudes of speed, ranging from 1Mbit/s to 100Gbit/s.
10 Gigabit Ethernet is popular in enterprise and carrier environments. New developments encompass 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet.
Gigabit Ethernet applications require low noise timing solutions, with improved waveform integrity and very low jitter.
Rubyquartz offers a family of high frequency, low jitter clock oscillators and VCXOs for 1,10 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet applications, with typical frequencies 25MHz, 50Mhz, 75MHz, 125Mhz, 150 MHz, 156.25MHz,etc.
