Exar Offers Wide Frequency Universal Clocks with Ultra-Low Jitter

19 MAY 2014

Exar Corporation announced an addition to its range of telecommunications timing products with a new family of Universal Clocks. The XR811xx series offers a wide range of output

frequencies from 10MHz to 1.5GHz, with ultra-low phase noise jitter of less than 200fs. Designed for communications, audio/video and industrial applications, the QFN-10 and TSSOP-8 packaged devices are footprint compatible with industry standard synthesizers, providing a superior performance second source option. The design of Exar’s XR811xx synthesizers utilizes a highly flexible delta-sigma modulator and a very wide-ranging VCO in a PLL block that has been optimized to be extremely power efficient. With a core current consumption of just 20mA, these parts dissipate 60% less power than equivalent competitive devices, providing a very compelling power efficiency benefit to system designers. The PLL can operate from either an input system clock or a crystal and incorporates both an integer divider and a high-resolution (<1Hz) fractional divider for increased flexibility to generate any clock frequency. Additionally up to four different frequency multiplier settings can be stored allowing for different application configurations providing BOM savings compared to multiple synthesizers. The XR811xx family also offers a choice of LVCMOS, LVDS or LVPECL output drivers. Exar
