The IDT8T49N488I is a quad PLL with FemtoClock® NG technology, integrating low phase noise Frequency Translator / Synthesizer, Jitter attenuator, and alarm and monitoring functions suitable for networking and communications applications. The device has four fully independent PLLs, each PLL is able to generate any output frequency in the 0.98MHz - 312.5MHz range and most output frequencies in the 312.5MHz - 1,300MHz range. A wide range of input reference clocks and operation reference clock may be used as the source for the output frequency. Each PLL has three operating modes to support a very broad spectrum of applications: Frequency Synthesizer, High-Bandwidth Frequency Translator and Low-Bandwidth Frequency Translator.
