Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions, has announced to expand its portfolio of clock management fanout buffers. For this, the company has introduced four new miClockBuffer™ products and three new miSmartBuffer™ products. The ZL40230, ZL30235 and ZL30240 miSmartBuffer and ZL40231, ZL40234, ZL40241 and ZL40260 miClockBuffer devices target a variety of applications within the communications, data center and enterprise markets.
The miClockBuffer devices provide customers with single-ended and differential fanout buffers with hardware control pins, while the miSmartBuffer lineup offers highly flexible single-ended and differential outputs (I/Os) and per output control through a serial port.
The new devices augment Microsemi’s product family of traditional differential buffers and miSmartBuffers to complete customers’ clock trees. These offer expanded options and features including up to 10 differential outputs, per output and output bank control, ultra-low additive jitter and power supply noise suppression.
Key Features of miClockBuffer products
• Up to three inputs/crystal input/inverted micra/high-speed crystal
• Up to 10 low-voltage positive-referenced emitter coupled logic (LVPECL)/low-voltage differential signals (LVDS)/high-speed current steering logic (HCSL)
• 10 low voltage complementary metal oxide semiconductor (LVCMOS) only outputs
• Low skew, and ultra-low additive jitter of 30 fs RMS (12kHz to 20 mHz)
• Hardware control pins
Key Features of miSmartBuffer devices
• Serial port interface
• Integer dividers on the LVCMOS outputs
• Software control of outputs
• Ultra-low additive jitter of 30 fs RMS (12kHz to 20 mHz)
Microsemi’s ZL40230, ZL40231, ZL40234, ZL40235, ZL40240, ZL40241 and ZL40260 miClockBuffer and miSmartBuffer products are available now, with additional devices from the product family planned for release in the coming months.
