Clock Buffer and Divider IC delivers extremely low jitter.

Press Release Summary:

Housed in 24-lead LFCSP package, 1.65 GHz Model AD9508 delivers low jitter of 41 fs across 12 kHz to 20 MHz band. Device has 4 dedicated output dividers with bus-programmable division and phase delay, and automatic synchronization. Dividers also have pin-strapping capability for hardwired programming at system power-up. Operating from -40 to 85°C, Model AD9508 supports up to 4 differential, or 8 single-ended outputs and 3 logic levels: LVDS (1.65 GHz), HSTL (1.65 GHz), and CMOS (250 MHz).

Original Press Release:

Multi-output, 1.65-GHz Clock Buffer and Divider Delivers Low Jitter to Optimize Noise Performance in Ultra-high-speed Data Converters

NORWOOD, Mass.-- Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) today introduced a clock buffer and divider IC (integrated circuit) that combines high-speed, extremely low jitter (41 fs across the 12-kHz to 20-MHz band) and selectable division capability. The 1.65-GHz AD9508 clock buffer is designed for communications, instrumentation, defense and aerospace equipment that require ultra-high-speed data conversion with optimum SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) performance. The device has four dedicated output dividers with bus-programmable division (integers up to 1024) and phase delay, and automatic synchronization. The dividers also have pin-strapping capability for hardwired programming at system power-up. The AD9508 supports up to four differential, or eight single-ended outputs and three logic levels: LVDS (1.65 GHz), HSTL (1.65 GHz), and CMOS (250 MHz).
