A huge growth in always-on mobile devices, the explosion in cloud computing and other needs for high volume data traffic are driving the needs of higher data throughput for networking equipment. The mainstream 10GbE backbone interface is being upgraded to higher speed interfaces such as 25/40/100GbE to increase the data throughput of network backbones for networking and data centers. Chipsets that support these higher backbone data rates require even lower jitter, more stable clock sources that can be low enough to provide system engineers with design margin. Ultra low jitter clock source is the key to the high speed interface for system performance.
"Pericom has the best performance solutions that can achieve sub 100 femto-second (fs) jitter performance to provide system design margins for high data rate applications," said Wendy Zhou, product marketing director, Pericom Semiconductor. "The modern system design needs to support various clock tree architectures. Our complete solutions provide multiple Ultra low jitter clock tree implementation options for system engineers to meet the performance, board space, and cost requirements."
Complete timing solutions from Pericom include crystal, crystal oscillator (XO), clock synthesizer, and clock buffers for growing 25/40/100GbE applications. These products are an important part of Pericom's timing solution targeted for the fast growing, Networking/Data Center segment:
