Hittite's New 10 GHz Latched Comparators in Compact, Plastic SMT Packages
- New Comparators Target High Volume Medical, Industrial & ATE Applications
Chelmsford, MA, 1/6/2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based
solutions for communication & military markets has extended its high performance Comparator product line with the
launch of three new products in compact, plastic SMT packages. The
provide lower power consumption compared with traditional comparator solution and are optimized for
high performance, high volume applications. A unique combination of 10 GHz input bandwidth, low propagation delay
dispersion, low jitter, and high input common-mode range, make these comparators ideal for medical, industrial,
ATE, high speed instrumentation and communications applications.
are monolithic comparators which feature 10 GHz input bandwidth, level-latched inputs and reduced
swing PECL, CML and ECL output drivers respectively. The
comparators offer less than 100 ps propagation delay, and support 60 ps minimum pulse width with
only 0.2 ps rms random jitter. These devices also feature differential latch control and programmable hysteresis,
and they may be configured to operate in either latch mode, or as tracking comparators. With overdrive and slew
rate dispersion of 10 ps and power consumption of less than 140 mW, these comparators are also ideal for digital
receivers, clock and data restoration circuits, and pulse spectroscopy.
Housed in compact plastic RoHS
compliant 3x3 mm SMT packages and specified for operation from -40 °C to +85 °C, the
complement the previously released
level-latched comparators, and are pin-for-pin compatible.
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 order. View released data sheets and Hittite's complete line
