Product designers can evaluate jitter and phase noise performance of their timing solution without setting foot in a lab.

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 17, 2019 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), is giving product designers a powerful new tool with today’s introduction of the new Jitter Measurement Utility. This web-based, fully automated tool enables designers to quickly and easily evaluate the jitter and phase noise performance of their custom clock configurations without using their own test equipment.

“The need for higher timing performance is being driven by the introduction of new technologies such as 5G, mmWave, and 56G PAM-4. The Jitter Measurement Utility enables designers to meet the stringent jitter and phase noise requirements of these applications without setting foot in a lab – they remotely take advantage of ours,” said Bobby Matinpour, vice president and general manager of Renesas’ Timing Products Division. “Our Jitter Measurement Utility is the latest example of our commitment to ensuring product designers can maximize the performance of their systems with our timing solutions, and it complements our Timing Commander software.”

To use the Jitter Measurement Utility, designers must first create a custom device configuration file with IDT’s Timing Commander™ program then upload the file to the Jitter Measurement Utility page on the IDT website to initiate automated measurement of an evaluation board with the supported device  in IDT’s Timing lab. Results are typically available in five minutes or less and complete performance reports are sent via email.

The Jitter Measurement Utility currently supports most of IDT’s programmable timing products, including the VersaClock®, PhiClock™, ProXO™ and UFT™ families. Find more information at
