Analog Devices, Inc. announces the clock IC to combine low-phase noise clock generation with 14-channel clock distribution at jitter levels below 1 pico-second. The AD9516 series integrates an integer-N synthesizer, two reference inputs, a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), programmable dividers, adjustable delay lines and 14 clock drivers, including LVPECL, LVDS and CMOS. This level of integration replaces several discrete components and when compared with existing solutions, enables designers to reduce board space and bill-of-materials (BOM) costs for clocking by more than 50 percent. In addition, integrating the VCO on-chip greatly diminishes risks associated with the failure of discrete oscillators, improving overall system reliability. The AD9516's combination of integration and performance is ideal for applications, such as wireless and wired infrastructure, optical networks, WiMAX base stations, medical imaging, automated test equipment and other instrumentation, that require low phase noise and low jitter in the clock path.
