Analog Devices Press Release - August 14, 2009

ADI Clocking ICs Replace Expensive, High-Frequency VCOs; Improve Jitter

ADI’s AD9552 and AD9547 clock ICs streamline design and lower cost for HDTV, data acquisition, wireless basestations, test-and-measurement, networking and telecommunications applications.  

Visit Analog DevicesAugust 14, 2009 -- NORWOOD, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, expanded its clock-product portfolio today with the launch of the AD9552 oscillator frequency upconverter and the AD9547 clock synchronizer. Both products streamline system designs and reduce implementation complexity and cost while improving jitter performance.

AD9552 Functional Block DiagramThe AD9552 replaces larger, expensive, high-frequency VCOs (voltage-controlled oscillators), including OCXO (oven-controlled crystal oscillator), VCXO (voltage-controlled crystal oscillator) and TCXO (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator) devices. The upconverter requires either a single-ended, low-frequency reference signal or a crystal reference to establish the higher output frequency the IC generates. It provides ultra-low jitter of under 0.5 ps (picoseconds) operating with input frequencies in the range of 50 kHz to 80 MHz at half the price of competitive alternatives. The device can generate almost any desired output frequency up to 900 MHz for a variety of applications, such as HDTV, data acquisition, wireless basestations, test and measurement, networking and telecommunications. The upconverter features very low power consumption–less than 400 mW in a compact 5 mm x 5 mm package size.

The AD9552 is a fractional-N, PLL- (phase-locked-loop) based clock generator. The device employs a Σ-Δ (sigma-delta) modulator to accomplish fractional frequency synthesis. The user supplies an input reference signal by connecting a single-ended clock signal to the REF pin or by connecting a crystal resonator across the XTAL pins. The AD9552 is pin-programmable, providing one of 64 standard output frequencies from any of eight common input frequencies. The device also has a 3-wire SPI interface, enabling the user to program custom input-to-output frequency ratios. The AD9552 requires only a 12-nF external capacitor to complete the PLL’s loop filter. The output is compatible with LVPECL, LVDS, or single-ended CMOS logic levels.
 
Functional Block Diagram for AD9547AD9547: Next Generation Clock Synchronizer Offers 66 Percent Better Jitter Performance, up to 100-times Narrower Loop Filters
 
The AD9547 is the next generation of the AD9549 – one of ADI's most popular new clock devices in both the wired and wireless telecom markets. When compared to the AD9549, the AD9547 boasts 66 percent better jitter, 100 times narrower loop-filter bandwidths (as narrow as 1 milliHertz) with twice as many inputs and outputs, and it supports Stratum-2 level holdover. The AD9547 also serves any application with remote equipment requiring synchronization to local systems. It generates an output clock that synchronizes to one of two differential or four single-ended external input references saving designers time and money because they no longer need to rely on additional clock distribution chips to complete their clock trees.
 
The AD9547 provides synchronization for many systems, including synchronous optical networks (SONET/SDH). The digital PLL reduces input time jitter or phase noise associated with the external references. The AD9547 continuously generates a clean, low jitter, valid output clock, even when all references have failed, by means of digitally-controlled loop and holdover circuitry.
