Press Release Summary:
As flexible clock network management device, UT7R2XLR816 offers independent bank programmability for frequency, I/O type, polarity, skew, and voltage. It supplies up to 16 clock outputs over 8 banks, with independent power supplies for each. Outputs can be configured as LVCMOS or standard LVDS pairs, and phase is adjustable with respect to reference clock. Other characteristics include less than 50 ps jitter, 24-200 MHz operating range, and total dose tolerance of 100 krads (Si).

Aeroflex Colorado Springs Announces the UT7R2XLR816 Clock Network Manager
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - Aeroflex Colorado Springs announced today production of their UT7R2XLR816 Clock Network Manager, featuring eight (8) independently programmable output banks. Bank programmability includes: frequency, I/O type (LVDS or CMOS), polarity, skew, and voltage. Aeroflex's first clock product, the UT7R995, supplied four (4) programmable output banks and began production in 2006.
"Aeroflex's Clock Family had a great beginning," said Anthony Jordan, director-standard products. "The UT7R995 was named an Electronic Products "Product of the Year" in 2004; we expanded the clock family in 2006 with the low-voltage, minimum skew, one-to-eight UT54ALVC2525 Clock Driver. With the continued demand for a clock network solution, customers came to Aeroflex requesting a more capable Clock Network Manager."
Aeroflex's UT7R2XLR816 is a flexible clock network management device, supplying up to 16 clock outputs over eight banks, with independent power supplies for each bank (+2.25V to +3.6V), giving the user greater flexibility in multi-voltage systems. Additionally, outputs can be configured as LVCMOS or standard LVDS pairs. An adjustable phase feature allows the control of phase on each output bank with respect to the reference clock.
Applications such as high altitude avionics, satellites, x-ray cargo scanners, test and measurement, networking, telecommunications and mass storage can take advantage of the UT7R2XLR816's low jitter (< 50ps), wide operating range (24MHz to 200MHz), and a total dose tolerance of 100 krads(Si).
"Aeroflex's Clock Family reduces power consumption, board space, design cycles and lowers system cost," continued Jordan. "Packaged in a 168-CLGA, CBGA, and CCGA, the UT7R2XLR816 doubles clock output versus the UT7R995 while consuming nearly the same amount of board space."
The UT7R2XLR816 Clock Network Manager is available as QML Q and V for HiRel applications and has been assigned SMD # 5962-08243. Prototypes are available along with an evaluation board to support design development and debug. Production parts are priced at $1825.00 for 100 quantity QML Q.
