Hittite Launches New Broadband Time Delay Product Line
Ideal for Serial Data Transmission up to 32 Gbps
Chelmsford, MA, 06/21/2010 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the
world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets has launched the
HMC910LC4B - the first product in the new Broadband Time Delay product line. The
HMC910LC4B is a DC to 24 GHz time delay product which is ideal for timing adjustment in complex digital
applications including clock and data recovery, edge detection, NRZ-to-RZ conversion, data restoration and
HMC910LC4B provides a continuously variable time delay from 0 ps to 70 ps while maintaining a constant
differential output voltage swing. The device accepts either single-ended or differential input data, while the
differential output swing is easily programmed with a DC voltage. The
HMC910LC4B provides a time delay which is linearly monotonic with respect to the delay control voltage, VDC,
which may be varied from 1.1 V to 2.3 V. An integrated temperature compensation feature minimizes the delay
variations over temperature. The delay control port provides a modulation bandwidth of 600 MHz.
HMC910LC4B is optimized for high speed operation and provides rise and fall times of 14 ps, and less than 300
fs rms random jitter, which can support serial data transmission up to 32 Gbps, or clock signal delay up to 24
HMC910LC4B also exhibits a very high quality eye diagram at high data rates, provides excellent stability over
temperature, and operates from a single +3.3 V DC supply.
All RF input and output signals of the
HMC910LC4B are terminated with 50 Ohms to Vcc, and may be either AC or DC coupled. Outputs should be connected
directly to a 50 Ohm to +3.3 V terminated system, while DC blocking capacitors should be used if the terminating
system is 50 Ohms to an alternate DC voltage. The
HMC910LC4B complements many of Hittite’s previously released Fiber Optic and High Speed Logic products, and is
housed in a ceramic 4 x 4 mm SMT package (RoHS compliant) and specified for operation from -40 °C to +85 °C. A
released datasheet may be found at
www.hittite.com. Samples and evaluation PC boards are
available from stock and can be ordered via the company’s e-commerce site or via direct purchase order.
