Press Release Summary:
Models MAX3627 and MAX3629 utilize low-noise XO and PLL architecture to generate high-frequency (312.5 MHz), low-jitter (0.14 psecRMS) clock signals from 25 MHz crystal or reference clock input. While MAX3627 offers 7 LVDS outputs and one LVCMOS output, MAX3629 has 5 LVDS outputs and 3 LVCMOS outputs. Both simultaneously generate 2 pin-selectable frequencies for Ethernet port clocking and MAC clocking, eliminating need for high-frequency oscillator and fanout buffer.
Original Press Release:
Multiple-Output Clock Generators Exceed All Ethernet Data-Communication System Requirements
Clock generators with multiple outputs generate all Ethernet frequencies.
SUNNYVALE, CA-August 3, 2009-Maxim Integrated Products (NASDAQ: MXIM) introduces the MAX3627/MAX3629 low-jitter clock generators for high-speed networking applications. The MAX3627 has seven LVDS outputs and one LVCMOS output, while the MAX3629 has five LVDS outputs and three LVCMOS outputs. These devices utilize a low-noise crystal oscillator and PLL architecture to generate high-frequency (312.5MHz), ultra-low-jitter (0.14psRMS) clock signals from a 25MHz crystal or reference clock input. The MAX3627/MAX3629 simultaneously generate two pin-selectable frequencies for both Ethernet port clocking and MAC clocking. This function eliminates the need for an expensive high-frequency oscillator and a fanout buffer, thus saving board space and cost. With excellent power-supply noise rejection (PSNR), both the MAX3627 and MAX3629 minimize jitter degradation in noisy power-supply environments, thus minimizing overall jitter degradation for increased quality of system timing design-this too saves board space and cost. The MAX3627/MAX3629 are ideal for Ethernet interface applications, such as enterprise switches and routers, and other high-speed data-communication systems that require a low-jitter Ethernet frequency.
Both devices are fully specified over the 0°C to +70°C commercial temperature range, and operate from a 3.3V ±5% power supply. They are available in lead-free, 32-pin TQFN packages with prices starting at $8.80 (1000-up, FOB USA).
