Silicon Labs (Austin, TX) has introduced the industry’s lowest jitter, lowest power and most frequency-flexible timing solution for high-speed networking equipment based on the Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) standard. Offering an unmatched combination of any-frequency synthesis and industry-leading jitter performance (as low as 263 femtoseconds RMS), the new Si5328 precision clock multiplier and jitter attenuator addresses the need for ultra-low jitter physical layer reference clocks in Carrier Ethernet switches and routers. Eighty percent smaller and also 80 percent more power efficient than competing SyncE clocks, the Si5328 provides a best-in-class SyncE-compliant timing solution for edge routers, multi-service switches, wireless backhaul systems, DSLAMs and GPON/GEPON optical line termination (OLT) equipment. Features include:

  • 10, 40, and 100 GbE carrier Ethernet switches and routers.
  • High-performance SyncE clock to provide wander filtering, distribute timing, and provide a low-jitter Ethernet PHY reference clock.
  • An output frequency range from 8 kHz to 808 MHz.
  • An input frequency range from 8kHz to 710 MHz
