CTS Electronic Component Solutions (Elkhart, IN) and Microsemi (Aliso Viejo, CA) built and tested a joint reference design to offer high quality products for applications requiring a master clock with a fan-out buffer that deliver ultra-low jitter without compromising performance. Specifically, CTS has paired its crystal clock oscillator with Microsemi’s high performance fanout buffers to distribute multiple output clocks with typical jitter in the range of 100ƒs for critical circuit applications such as CDR, data storage, Synchronous Ethernet switches, communication transmitters and receivers, and high speed Ethernet PHYs and transceivers. Features include:
- Output frequency of up to 156.250MHz.
- Limits the output jitter to 55ƒs in a 9x14mm or 5x7mm package option.
- Allows the designer to meet OC- 192 jitter standards.
- Telcordia GR- 1244-CORE, GR-253-CORE, ITU-T G.813 and ITU-T G.8261 compliant.
