Silicon Labs reduces cost and complexity of timing technology for coherent optical market

Silicon Labs introduced a family of jitter-attenuating clocks that simplifies 100G/400G coherent optical line card and module design by providing a high-frequency, flexible clocking solution that significantly reduces system-level cost and complexity. Silicon Labs’ new Si534xH coherent optical clocks replace discrete timing solutions that rely on expensive, large-footprint voltage-controlled SAW oscillators (VCSOs) to provide low-jitter reference timing for data converters. Unlike VCSOs that support single, fixed frequencies, the new Si534xH clocks operate over a wide frequency range, supporting frequencies up to 2.7 GHz without the need to change bill-of-material (BOM) components.

Broadcom introduces Enterprise 5G-HD Wi-Fi platform

Broadcom Ltd. announced a new dual-channel 5GHz Wi-Fi access point platform designed to enable enterprise and public venue operators to optimize performance for all connected devices. The Broadcom® 5G-HD platform is built on the new BCM49408 quad-core CPU, enabling client devices that are 5GHz 11ac-capable to maintain the fastest possible speeds by eliminating performance degradation that occurs when slower client devices share traditional single channel 5GHz Wi-Fi access points.
