PMC-Sierra introduced their SynthePHY family of integrated dual channel 6Gb/s SERDES and programmable clock synthesizer solutions optimized for wireless infrastructure radio designs. The SynthePHY devices feature 30 clock outputs that can be programmed over a wide frequency band, ranging from 3MHz to 1.6GHz and meet the phase noise performance required by multi-carrier GSM, WCDMA and LTE systems. The devices are rated for industrial temperature operation (-40 to +85 degrees Celsius). The SynthePHY family includes the PM7501 SynthePHY 6G and PM7520 SyntheCLK devices. PMC-Sierra’s SynthePHY family is available now.
Pentek introduced the Model 7191 programmable multifrequency clock synthesizer. The Pentek Model 7191 clock synthesizer uses low-noise VCXOs for the fundamental frequency generation. The VCXO output is followed by a clock synchronizer from Texas Instruments to enable synchronization with common frequency reference sources. The user-configurable PMC module is ideal for designers working with A/Ds and D/As. The price of the Model 7191 Multifrequency Programmable Clock Synthesizer is $2,995 USD.
