Ideal for Optical Transmitters, SONET OC-768 & Test Equipment

Chelmsford, MA, 7/14/09 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has introduced a new connectorized 1:2 Fanout Buffer module, which supports data transmission/clock rates of 50 Gbps/30 GHz, and is ideal for OC-768 and SDH STM-256 equipment, short, intermediate, and long haul optical transmitter modules, and broadband test and measurement applications.

The HMC-C062 is a connectorized 1:2 Fanout Buffer module which supports single-ended or differential operation and data transmission rates up to 50 Gbps and, also serves as an alternate to Inphi's 50716CF. The device operates with clock signals up to 30 GHz, and the input is broadband from DC to 30 GHz. During normal operation, input data (or clock) is transferred to both output channels. Differential input signals to the HMC-C062 are terminated with 50 Ohms to ground on-chip, and may be either AC or DC coupled. The differential outputs of the HMC-C062 may be either AC or DC coupled. Propagation delay is typically 270 ps, while rise and fall times are less than 11 ps. Ideal for high performance broadband test applications, the HMC-C062 exhibits 2 ps of deterministic jitter, and less than 0.2 ps of additive random jitter.

The HMC-C062 operates from a -3.3V DC supply, while consuming only 455 mW. The HMC-C062 is specified for operation from -40°C to +70°C and is housed in a miniature hermetically sealed module with 1.85 mm connectors. All connectorized modules are available from stock and can be ordered on-line.
