New IDT Synchronous Equipment Timing Sources and Universal Frequency Translators Offer Proven Scalable Solutions for High-Speed Synchronous Ethernet Systems

The New Devices Offer Tested ITU-T G.8262-Compliant Solutions that Provide Frequency Generation Flexibility and Facilitate Design Reusability

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 23, 2014— Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today added new SyncE (synchronous Ethernet) solutions to its portfolio, including new SETS (synchronous equipment timing sources) devices and new members of the third-generation Universal Frequency Translators (UFT). Together these two families support ITU-T G.8262 SyncE compliance in single board or multi-board architectures with network interfaces operating at up to 100 Gigabit/s.

The new IDT offering consists of two SETS devices — the 82P33714 and 82P33731; and three UFT devices—the 8T49N285, 8T49N286 and 8T49N287. The SETS devices generate SyncE compliant timing references for an entire system. The UFT devices are ideal for line cards in multi-board systems to adapt SETS timing signals for local interfaces while preserving SyncE compliance. The two families have been tested together and are proven to provide SyncE-compliant clocks.

The SETS devices provide flexibility to accept network synchronization references from virtually any source including 1 PPS (pulse per second) signals from GPS (global positioning system) receivers. The 82P33714 can directly time 1G PHYs; while the 82P33731 can directly time 10G PHYs.

“Our new SETS and UFTs offer unique solutions for addressing increasingly complex timing challenges, including those posed by today’s stringent standards,” said IDT’s Louise Gaulin, vice president and general manager, Network Communications Division. “Our new technology delivers the performance, flexibility and ease of use that provides a path to efficiently simplify the development of clock trees while meeting the requirements of G.8262 and other standards.”

 In line card applications the UFT devices deliver reliably solid jitter performance to directly time 10G PHYs and interfaces up to 100G. They provide redundancy management, jitter attenuation and consistent phase noise performance at any loop bandwidth settings. For even greater flexibility, each output differential pair can independently be used as LVPECL, LVDS, HCSL, or two CMOS. The IDT technology allows highly flexible frequency plans, including any rate conversion to unrelated output frequencies, helping engineers simplify complex clock trees.

Flexibility and ease of programmability provide the SETS and UFT devices with the ability to be used and reused in many different clock trees while reducing engineering effort. The recently introduced Timing Commander tool enables a fast and easy reconfiguration of the devices.
