Jitter Attenuator with 250MHz Reference Clock
IDT has announced the introduction of a jitter attenuator optimized for the Xilinx Virtex-4 family of FPGAs. Designed to support PCI Express (PCIe), this component is said to be the industry’s first timing device capable of attenuating or “cleaning” the jitter from a 100 MHz PCIe input clock, while translating it to a 250 MHz LVDS output.
1.8V high-speed DUARTS
DT Electronics has made available Exar's family of dual universal asynchronous receiver transmitters (DUARTS) that operate from a 1.62V to 3.63V supply and feature 16, 32 or 64-byte FIFOs. Designated the M-series, each channel of these devices is capable of data rates up to 16 MBps at 3.3V with a 4X sampling clock.
