IDT Introduces VersaClock® 5 with Best-in-class Jitter Performance at 50% Lower Power than Competing Devices
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Integrated Device Technology (News - Alert), Inc. (IDT®)
(NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential
mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that it has
extended its leadership in the timing market with the introduction of
5 family of programmable
clock generators, featuring best-in-class jitter performance at half
the power of competing devices. IDT's multi-output timing solution
consolidates system components with superior design flexibility, making
it ideal for cost-sensitive, low-power consumer and low-jitter
is an in-system programmable clock generator featuring four universal
output pairs capable of producing independent frequencies up to 350�MHz
in various output types. The highly-integrated device consolidates four
differential or eight single-ended clock generators, and can store up to
four different configuration settings, helping to minimize board space
and bill-of-materials. With RMS phase jitter less than 0.7 picoseconds
over the full 12�kHz to 20�MHz integration range, the new device meets
the stringent jitter requirements of PCI (News - Alert) Express® Gen 1/2/3,
USB 3.0, and 1G/10G Ethernet. The high-performance clock generator
operates at less than 100 mW core power (50 percent lower than competing
devices), helping to ease system thermal constraints, reduce operating
power expenses, and maximize battery life.
"VersaClock 5 is the best-in-class, complete clock tree solution for
cost-sensitive, low-power consumer and low-jitter communication timing
applications," said Christian
Kermarrec, vice president and general manager of the Timing and
Synchronization Division at IDT. "Architecting a clock tree can be a
complex process that is often further complicated by the inflexibility
oscillator frequencies and procurement requirements. VersaClock 5
solves these issues with inherent flexibility in frequency and output
configuration, crystal consolidation, and world-class support tools."
The 5P49V5901's four universal output pairs are each independently
configurable as HCSL, LVPECL, LVDS, or dual LVCMOS outputs. The
fractional output dividers driving each output pair are easily
programmed via 2C while the device is operating in the
system, lending itself to system tuning and margin testing. Unlimited
in-system reprogramming is possible via I2C, whereas four
banks of one-time programmable non-volatile memory provide flexibility
for multi-project inventory consolidation or design changes in field or
production units. Upon request, devices may be factory-programmed to the
customer's desired configuration.
The high level of integration, flexibility, and performance enables
system designers to address a multitude of applications, such as:
consumer, networking, computing, industrial, communications, broadcast
video, and medical. The new product is fully supported by IDT's Timing
Commander™ software platform, allowing engineers to configure and
program their devices with an intuitive, time-saving graphical user
interface (GUI). Pre-developed configuration files are available for the
most common applications.
Pricing and Availability
The IDT 5P49V5901
is stocked at all of IDT's major distributors. The device is available
in a 24-lead 4�x�4�mm VFQFPN package, and is priced at $4.50 each for
volumes of 10,000 units. To download the Timing Commander software and
