PCIe Timing

Through the years, PCI Express® (PCIe®) protocol has evolved to accommodate the needs of higher speeds, imposing stringent requirements for a reliable clock source. Microchip offers a comprehensive line of PCIe® Gen 5 compliant oscillators, clock generators and buffers to address this need. Our timing parts not only meet the PCIe® jitter requirements, but also allow allocation of up to 70% of total jitter margin to the rest of the system. With our highly integrated single-chip solutions, designers can reduce component count and board area without sacrificing performance.

Key Features

  • PCIe Gen 1/2/3/4/5 compliant
  • Single and multi-output solutions
  • Fully integrated single-chip solution
  • Configurable with fast samples
