Bringing synchronisation to digital electronics
Most electronic systems that you design or use will have one or more oscillators to provide a clock to synchronise operations, act as a frequency reference or enable accurate timing. This article discusses the advantages of quartz crystal oscillators, and some of the choices available. Qin Zhuang, Applications Engineering Manager, Diodes Incorporated explains.
Helping networks adopt optical interfaces
The demand for greater bandwidth is present in all applications but nowhere is this more apparent than in telecommunications and data communications infrastructures. The use of fibre optics is an effective way of adding bandwidth, but it comes with the requirement of a transceiver module to terminate each end of the cable.
