The LTC6950, clock distributer employs the company’s proprietary EZSync output synchronization, a simple, effective method to edge-synchronize multiple outputs from either one chip or multiple chips. EZSync synchronization aligns the rising edges by asserting a common CMOS input with loose timing requirements. The method can also be used to produce repeatable and deterministic phase relationships between the clock divider outputs of devices that have this feature enabled. Other features of the LTC6950 include a normalized in-band phase noise floor, or figure-of-merit, of –226 dBc/Hz and a –274dBc/Hz normalized 1/f phase noise. It is specified over a junction temperature range from –40°C to +105°C and is available in a 5 mm × 9 mm, 48-lead plastic QFN package. Price $9.95 each/1,000.
