Clock IC, Timing Devices, and Timing Solutions

Market Leader in Clock IC Timing Solutions

IDT is the world’s leading provider of silicon timing devices (clock ICs) and offers the industry’s broadest product portfolio of clock timing solutions for networking and communications, consumer, and computing applications. With the industry’s largest market share, IDT is the only “one-stop-shop” for timing solutions, offering products from full-featured system solutions to simple clock building-block devices. Factory-programmable options and clock solution customization capabilities address unique customer requirements, while the lowest jitter and lowest power features set IDT apart from the competition.

Extensive Portfolio of Clock Timing Devices

With a clock IC portfolio 10 times greater than any other supplier, IDT is in a unique position to address the needs of virtually any application. IDT’s industry-leading portfolio of timing devices consists of clock generators, buffers, dividers, multiplexers, crystal oscillators, and jitter attenuators with frequency translation - many with programmable capabilities for maximum flexibility. Application-specific clock ICs address needs for RF timing and network synchronization, including JESD204B, synchronous ethernet, IEEE 1588, PDH, and SONETSDH.

About Clock ICs and Clock Timing Solutions
A “clock IC” is a broad term used to describe integrated circuits that generate, condition, manipulate, distribute, or control a timing signal in an electronic system. At its most basic level, a clock timing signal oscillates between an electrical high and a low state and is utilized like a metronome to coordinate the actions of circuits. When applied to today’s most advanced technologies, clocking ICs must be able to generate accurate clock pulses, and continuously and reliably distribute that signal for use by various timing devices within the system. When operating at such high speeds, system design and environmental factors make it especially challenging to maintain signal quality, often resulting in higher bit error rates (BER) and degraded system performance. Fortunately, IDT offers a wide range of clock timing solutions to meet the stringent system requirements of virtually any application.
