IDT extends timing leadership with ultra-flexible frequency translation devices
The devices are easy to configure and allow for output frequencies that are not limited by the traditional integer or fractional multiples of the input frequency, for use in a myriad of high-performance applications, including communications line cards, networking interfaces, embedded systems, and 4G wireless base-stations.
The IDT 840N202I, 849N202I, 849N212I UFT devices accept a wide range of input frequencies from 8 kHz to 710 MHz and translate them into output frequencies from 1 MHz to 1.3 GHz, without the limitation of an integer relationship between input and output. Unlike other universal frequency translation products on the market, IDT’s devices offer industry-leading jitter and phase noise performance, making them ideal for use in high-performance applications where multiple frequency translations are needed, such as in communications and networking equipment that carry multi-service traffic. In addition, the devices feature the capability to adjust the degree of jitter attenuation performed, allowing the same device to be used in multiple applications or scenarios without the need to change components on the circuit board.
IDT’s frequency translation devices are highly flexible and easily configurable. With a simple and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) programming tool, users can quickly configure output frequencies and mode of operation and generate the configurations that can then be permanently stored in the device. The IDT UFT family supports two redundant inputs that can be switched automatically in the event of a failure on the primary input. The user is also able to control the rate of phase change on the output as the device switches between the inputs to optimize the handoff.
The IDT 840N202I, 849N202I, 849N212I UFT devices are currently sampling to qualified customers and are available in a 6 x 6 mm 40-ld QFN package.
