About Clock ICs and 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 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 products must be able to generate accurate clock pulses, and continuously and reliably distribute that signal for use by various 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 timing devices to meet the stringent system requirements of virtually any application. Specific families of clock ICs include: clock distribution, clock generation (single-ended and differential clock), PC notebook-server clocks, programmable skew, zero delay, non-PLL based clock fanout, synchronous jitter attenuation and frequency translation.
