Our automotive compliant crystal oscillators (XO) are designed to meet the stringent requirements for automotive applications and differentiated by a ‘Q’ in their part number. They are manufactured in facilities certified to the rigorous IATF 16949 standard, and capable of customer audit to VDA6.3. These parts are all supported by PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) documentation, thereby meeting all the requirements of the automotive electronics industry.
In addition, all of the automotive compliant crystal oscillators (XO) have been qualified using both AECQ-200 and QAP-81 to cover both the quartz resonator and the XO IC rather than using AEC-Q100 (defined for IC only). We plan to begin phasing in the AECQ-104 qualification standard for our new automotive compliant XO products during 2021, it will however NOT re-qualify previously AECQ-200 + QAP-81 qualified products to AEC-Q104 (main differences between the AECQ-200 + QAP-81 qualification standards and AECQ-0104 qualification standard are the quantities tested and the addition of an X-Ray check).
For VCXO and VCTCXO, the recomended method of defining pullability. The value is relative to the specified nominal frequency, net of the device's relative pull range and variations due to stability factors (such as temperature, aging, etc).
For VCXO and VCTCXO, a parameter used to define the maximum frequency pull from the actual operating frequency under a given set of operating conditions.
Parameter used to define the maximum deviation of the actual frequency from the specified nominal frequency over changes in operating conditions. Oscillator stability is usually rated as inclusive of temperature, load, initial calibration, supply, and aging effects.

In that section, you should be able to access all the links related to each product, in terms of reflow, test circuits and tape and reel information. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Not all obsolete parts will have a direct replacement. However, we recommended that you contact your regional sales office.
Jitter can be cause by: poor decoupling to the Vcc and GND, signal source with heavy jitter, slow edge rate which will provide additional time to introduce jitter to the signal. Additional information can be found in Application Note 24: Designing for Minimal Jitter when using Clock Buffers
There are several types of jitter, but the main ones are: cycle-to-cycle jitter, period jitter, half period jitter, and peak-to-peak jitter. Jitter terminology can be found in AB36: Jitter Measurement Techniques at Application Brief No. 36 or Application Note No. 27.
Cycle-to-cycle jitter is the difference in the clock's period between two consecutive cycles and is expressed in units of + pico-seconds. This is because it can be either leading or lagging from the ideal output waveform.
FCP is Frequency Control Product. They include crystals, crystal oscillators (XO), voltage control oscillators (VCXO), and TCXO. XO has IC and crystal integrated together as a component for quality easy use in system designs.

Half-Period Jitter is the measure of maximum change in a clock's output transition from its ideal position during one-half period. It is measured as: tjit(half-period) = thalf-period n – 1/2 ƒo, where ƒo is the frequency of the input signal.
Measurement of the deviation of a clock period from its ideal position as calculated with respect to the average operating frequency under a fixed set of operating conditions.
Part per million is used to measure the deviation of the output signal (+/-20 ppM = +/-0.002%).
All Pericom's products that are not lead-free are composed of 85% Sn and 15% Pb. For lead-free products, they are composed of 100% matte Sn. Lead-free products are marked and ordered with the letter "E" suffix at the end of the part number.
A crystal (or SAW) oscillator outputs a precise fixed-frequency clock signal at a specified nominal value, used for data and processor timing.
FIT and MTBF data can be found at Pericom's Quality webpage.
