Clock and Data Distribution

We offer one of the most extensive arrays of clock distribution product lines in the industry including drivers and receivers, dividers, logic translators, multiplexers, crosspoint switches, backplane and cable buffers and equalizers, delay lines for skew management, and flip-flops and logic gates. These devices support differential (LVPECL, LVDS, HCSL, CML) and single-ended CMOS outputs, and offer a maximum clock rate of 7.0 GHz and data rate of 10.7 Gbps. These products can be designed into a wide variety of applications including high-speed networking, communications, industrial, medical and military systems.
