Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced the AD9553 clock generator and ADCLK944 high-speed clock fanout buffer. The new clock products improve performance and reduce programming and design complexity in synchronous optical networks and wireless base stations. The AD9553 (5 mm x 5 mm, 32-lead LFCSP) and ADCLK944 (3 mm x3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP) are sampling now for $5.10 and $6.00, respectively.
IDT (Integrated Device Technology) introduced the 5P49EE801, 5P49EE802, 5P49EE601, 5P49EE602, and 5P49EE502 VersaClock LP devices. The VersaClock low power devices are available in several package options, including 20-pin and 24-pin QFN. The new timing devices are sampling to qualified customers and range in price from $0.80 to $1.25 for 10,000 units. Evaluation boards are available for qualified customers. The VersaClock low power (LP) devices are programmable clock generators designed to reduce power consumption and optimize board layout in battery-operated consumer applications.
