Integrated Device Technology, Inc. Adds New SyncE (Synchronous Ethernet) Solutions to its Portfolio
Oct 23 14
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. added new SyncE (synchronous Ethernet) solutions to its portfolio, including new SETS (synchronous equipment timing sources) devices and new members of the third-generation Universal Frequency Translators (UFT(TM)). Together these two families support ITU-T G.8262 SyncE compliance in single board or multi-board architectures with network interfaces operating at up to 100 Gigabit/s. The new IDT offering consists of two SETS devices--the 82P33714 and 82P33731; and three UFT devices--the 8T49N285, 8T49N286 and 8T49N287. The SETS devices generate SyncE-compliant timing references for an entire system. The UFT devices are ideal for line cards in multi-board systems to adapt SETS timing signals for local interfaces while preserving SyncE compliance. The two families have been tested together and are proven to provide SyncE-compliant clocks. The SETS devices provide flexibility to accept network synchronization references from virtually any source including 1 PPS (pulse per second) signals from GPS (global positioning system) receivers. The 82P33714 can directly time 1G PHYs; while the 82P33731 can directly time 10G PHYs. In line card applications the UFT devices deliver reliably solid jitter performance to directly time 10G PHYs and interfaces up to 100G. They provide redundancy management, jitter attenuation and consistent phase noise performance at any loop bandwidth settings. For even greater flexibility, each output differential pair can independently be used as LVPECL, LVDS, HCSL, or two CMOS. The IDT technology allows highly flexible frequency plans, including any rate conversion to unrelated output frequencies, helping engineers simplify complex clock trees.

Oct 21 14
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. introduced the F2912 switch, the first in a line of new radio frequency (RF) switch products planned by the semiconductor company. The F2912 has combination of low insertion loss, high isolation and linearity making it an ideal choice for base stations (2G, 3G and 4G), microwave backhaul and front haul, test equipment, CATV headend, WiMAX radios, wireless systems and general switching applications. The F2912 supports the latest system requirements for multiple applications with features that include: Frequency range of 300 KHz to 8 GHz, ieving broad bandwidth without sacrificing performance across the entire frequency range. Low IL of 0.4 dB, providing low path loss without compromising isolation performance. High isolation of 60 dB at 2 GHz to reduce signal leakage between adjacent RF port paths. High OIP3 of +64 dBm to reduce intermodulation distortion. P1 dB of 30 dBm, providing 1W compression point, ensuring rugged operation for a variety of applications. 3.3 V and 1.8 V control logic consistent with common FPGA and microcontroller logic levels. Operating temperature range of -55 to 125degC for high reliability in harsh thermal environments.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. Announces the Addition of 1.5 V Clock Generators and Clock Multiplexers
Oct 7 14
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. announced it has expanded its system-on-chip (SoC)-friendly PCI Express(R) (PCIe(R)) timing family with the addition of 1.5 V clock generators and clock multiplexers. The new devices join the previously introduced 1.5 V buffers to provide enterprise-level performance for space- and power-constrained designs. The chips offer up to a 90% reduction in power and board space compared to standard 3.3 V current-mode HCSL devices. The 9FGU clock generator family delivers two, four, six or eight outputs and is offered with and without internal terminations, giving the designer a choice of a flexible termination, or minimal board space with integrated terminations, for 100 ohm transmission lines. All devices are pin-compatible with IDT's 1.8 V 9FGV PCIe G123 clock generator family. The 1.5V 9DMU and pin-compatible 1.8V 9DMV clock multiplexers are two-input devices with either one or four outputs. These clock multiplexers are offered with a choice of external terminations or integrated 100-ohm terminations, and feature a choice of switchover modes. The user can choose between asynchronous switching or synchronous switching modes. The entire family supports PCIe Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 (Gen 1-2-3) phase jitter requirements. The chips are ideal for use in DSLR cameras, multi-function printers, solid state drives, vehicle infotainment systems, servers, micro-servers, set-top boxes, PCIe-based storage arrays, and a variety of other PCIe-based applications.
Integrated Device Technology Introduced a Family of IEEE 1588 Time and Frequency Generator Chips
Sep 30 14
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. introduced a family of IEEE 1588 time and frequency generator chips to reduce costs while meeting the synchronization needs of LTE-Advanced, wireless backhaul and heterogeneous networks. The unique architecture and capabilities of these devices are fully documented and accessible to allow IEEE 1588 software designers to implement their own clock recovery algorithms and add value for their customers through customization and quick turnaround support. The new family of chips includes synchronization management devices (SMDs) and port synchronizers for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). The SMDs manage IEEE 1588 time and frequency generation and SyncE synchronization. The port synchronizers select between redundant SMD signals and provide accurate time and low-jitter clocks to the network ports in the system. The IDT 82P33810, 82P33814 and 82P33831 SMDs reduce the cost of IEEE 1588 clocks by replacing stable but expensive oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs) with low-cost temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) that are stabilized with frequency information from the SyncE physical layer. The process of stabilizing the TCXOs is automatic and transparent to the IEEE 1588 clock recovery software. The IDT 82P33724 and 82P33741 port synchronizers provide independent timing channels for IEEE 1588 and SyncE; a third independent timing channel is provided for general purpose rate conversion. Hitless reference switching is supported between redundant IEEE 1588 references and between redundant SyncE references. These devices manage IEEE 1588 time and frequency references by accepting clocks paired with 1 pulse per second (1 PPS) sync signals.
IDT Announces Collaboration with Intel to Enable a Wire-Free World
Sep 9 14
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. announced at the Intel Developer Forum that it is working closely with Intel on the development of wireless charging solutions to accelerate the delivery and adoption of the nascent technology. As silicon and solutions leaders in wireless charging, the two companies expect to bring a new generation of wireless capabilities that make charging consumer products easier than ever. Based on magnetic resonance technology, these capabilities will enable the charging of multiple devices simultaneously and through chargers built into objects such as tabletops. This collaboration is the latest step in IDT's drive to deliver relief from the worry of running out of power, the clutter of wires, and the need to travel with chargers. The two companies, both board members of the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), will define, design and manufacture next-generation solutions that comply with the A4WP magnetic resonance standard. The new technology will offer the ability to charge both lower and higher power devices, from wearables and phones to tablets and PCs. The companies expect to have their technology in products in 2015.
