- Buyers Guide
IQD’s latest high performance oscillator, the IQRB-1, offers a stability around a 1000 times more accurate than a typical oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO). This means it can be used as a free run frequency source in applications such as LTE (Long Term Evolution) systems that require exceptional timing accuracy. It can also be used for UTMS as well as extended holdover for CDMA and WiMax.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC6957, a DC to 300 MHz dual output buffer/driver/logic translator, ideal for converting sine waves into low phase noise logic level signals. Prior solutions were unable to perform this conversion without introducing a significant amount of jitter.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6995, a simple, accurate low frequency clock uniquely configurable for long duration power-on reset and watchdog timer applications. The LTC6995 is the latest part in the TimerBlox® family of versatile silicon timing devices, which combines an accurate programmable oscillator with precision circuitry and logic.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced a clock buffer and divider IC that combines high-speed, extremely low jitter (41 fs across the 12-kHz to 20-MHz band) and selectable division capability.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced an enhanced solution for PCI Express® 3.0 receiver characterization at DesignCon.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced a wideband frequency synthesizer with integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) that delivers the industry’s lowest phase noise. Its combination of ultra-low noise phase-locked loop (PLL) and industry’s highest phase detector frequency outperforms the competition in both phase noise and spurs.
Micrel Inc., an industry leader in high-performance linear and power solutions, LAN, and timing and communications solutions, announces ClockWorks Fusion, a revolutionary clock generation product family that integrates the crystal, frequency synthesizer and fan-out buffer to deliver the industry’s highest level of integration. The MX85 is the first in a series of devices aimed at simultaneously meeting the ultra-low jitter (less than 200fs) and integration requirements of 10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe 2.0/3.0, Fibre Channel, SAS/SATA, and high speed reference clocking for FPGA and SerDesapplications.
ON Semiconductor, a premier supplier of high performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics, has introduced a new series of active spread spectrum clock generator integrated circuits (ICs) that manage electromagnetic interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) at the clock source, delivering system-wide EMI reduction of all clock dependent signals.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced an RF clock IC, (radio frequency clock integrated circuit) with the industry’s lowest jitter for communications and instrumentation equipment that requires high-speed data conversion and optimum SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) performance. The AD9525 RF clock IC achieves absolute broadband rms (root-mean square) jitter of 83-fs (1-kHz to 100-MHz offset range), at 245.76 MHz, including jitter contribution from the external VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator).
Texas Instruments Inc. introduced a pair of devices supporting the JEDEC JESD204B serial interface standard for data converters.
