Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®)
(NASDAQ:IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential
mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced the industry's
first Ethernet and IEEE
1588 timing devices optimized to meet the performance,
functionality, and cost targets of smart grid and industrial automation
applications. The new low-jitter timing products improve the accuracy
and reliability of IEEE 1588 time transport and offer important
flexibility with an integrated Ethernet
digital PLL (DPLL) and digitally-controlled
oscillator (DCO) in a single chip.
are low-jitter Ethernet PLLs used to frequency synchronize switches and
routers via the Ethernet physical layer to improve the reliability and
time accuracy of IEEE 1588-based transparent clocks, boundary clocks,
and ordinary clocks. The 8V89316 generates clocks suitable for QSGMII
(Quad Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interface) and 1 GbE interfaces,
while the ultra-low-jitter 8V89317 is suitable for 10 GbE interfaces and
adds the ability to lock to 1 PPS (pulse per second) GPS clocks. Both
devices include DCOs for increased flexibility, allowing them to lock to
an incoming Ethernet clock or synthesize their own IEEE 1588-based
clocks that other devices in the system can use as a frequency reference.
"IDT's latest Ethernet PLLs lead the market with the combination of
performance, features, and cost-effectiveness - facilitating the use of
Ethernet physical layer clocks in smart-grid and industrial
applications," said Louise
Gaulin, vice preident and general manager of the Network
Communications Division at IDT. "In addition to best-in-class jitter
performance, our combined DPLL and DCO capability offers flexibility to
connect an existing electrical timing input, or where that's not
feasible, to generate a new one based on IEEE 1588. Major equipment
manufacturers are now requiring these levels of performance and
functionality because they have been identified as critical factors in
time-sensitive applications such as power substation automation."
The 8V89317 can lock to a 1PPS frequency reference from a GPS receiver,
allowing use as part of a local network master clock without the need
for wire- or fiber-based access to a synchronization source. GPS timing
improves flexibility of the physical location of a clock and reduces
installation costs for 'timing islands' by eliminating the need to
extend a timing network to every location.
The 8V89316 achieves phase jitter below 650 femtoseconds RMS over the 10
kHz to 20 MHz integration range, making it appropriate for 1G Ethernet
PHYs and QSGMII (Quad Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interface). The
8V89317 phase jitter is below 300 femtoseconds RMS over the 10 kHz to 20
MHz integration range, capable of meeting the most stringent 10G or 40G
Ethernet PHY jitter performance requirements.
