Hittite Releases High Speed 43-45 Gbps Logic Family in SMT!
Ideal for 100 GbE, 40G (D)QPSK, 100G DP-QPSK & Broadband Test Equipment
Chelmsford, MA, 06/15/2010 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based
solutions for communication & military markets, has launched three new logic devices which support 43-45 Gbps data
transmission and clock rates up to 43 GHz. These devices are ideal for a wide range of applications, and support
many of the new and emerging optical, networking, and storage area network (SAN) standards including: 100 GbE, 40G
(D)QPSK and 100G DP-QPSK.
is a D-Type Flip-Flop which supports single-ended or differential operation, and data transmission
rates up to 43 Gbps. The device operates with clock signals up to 43 GHz, and the input is broadband from DC to 43
GHz. During normal operation, data is transferred to the outputs on the positive edge of the clock; reversing the
clock inputs accommodates negative-edge triggered applications.
is a 1:2 Fanout Buffer designed to support data transmission rates up to 45 Gbps, and clock signals
up to 28 GHz. The
is easily configured to provide AND/NAND/OR/NOR functions supporting data transmission rates up to
45 Gbps, and clock frequencies as high as 25 GHz. The differential input and output signals of the
are terminated with 50 Ohms to ground on-chip, and may be either AC or DC coupled.
delays are typically 10 ps, while rise and fall times are less than 12 ps. The
exhibit only 2 ps p-p of deterministic jitter, and less than 300 fs of additive random jitter.
Ideal for for signal loss compensation or signal level optimization, an output level control pin permits the
differential output voltage swing to be adjusted.
are specified for operation from -40 °C to +85 °C and operate from a -3.3 V DC supply, while
consuming less than 630 mW. Housed in ceramic, RoHS compliant, 4 x 4 mm SMT packages, these devices are also ideal
for high performance broadband test applications.
Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged
products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or via direct purchase
