The ClockMatrix family of devices are high-performance, precision timing solutions designed to simplify clock designs for applications with up to 100 Gbps interface speeds. 

They can be used anywhere in a system to perform critical timing functions, such as clock generation, frequency translation, jitter attenuation and phase alignment. A range of devices in the family support BBU, OTN, SyncE, synthesizer and jitter attenuator applications with several density options for each.

Key features include:

  • Flexibility – PLL channels are individually configurable as synthesizer, jitter attenuator, or DCO
  • Integration – up to 8 DPLLs and 12 outputs in a single package
  • Performance – RMS jitter as low as 100 fs (typ)
  • Standards compliant – IEEE 1588, OTN, and SyncE
  • Programmable – I2C, SPI or OTP
  • Right size for the job – Package options from 144-BGA down to 48-QFN
