This high-performance family of Low Voltage Zero Delay Buffers provides support for frequencies from DC to beyond specification (greater than 250Mhz Vs the 200MHz spec) with fan-outs of 12 and 14, and very low propagation delays (Tpd and Tskew) for precise re-synchronization (zero delay) and accuracy. These features coupled with fast edge rates and low jitter, enable the designer to maximize their timing budgets with minimal error budget contribution.
Packaged in 32 and 52 pin LQFP and TQFP packages, Alliance offers both commercial and industrial temperature grades, with standard tin-lead / Pb free - RoHS and/or Green compliant products.
According to Mark Sherwood, director of Marketing for the Alliance Mixed Signal Business Unit, "This is a significant introduction and roll out for Alliance Semiconductor. The combination of these Low Voltage High Performance ZDB's and LVNZDBs will add significantly to the current offering from Alliance Mixed signal and provides entry into the High-end LVCMOS clock market.
"This release allows Alliance Semiconductor to support all key aspects of the clock tree i.e. clock synthesis, frequency generation, clock signal distribution and re-synchronization. With this new addition, Alliance Semiconductor's Mixed Signal Group is now well positioned in clock and timing with a Very wide, in-depth and comprehensive portfolio into the high accuracy and performance applications segments."
Target applications include routers, switches, hubs, base stations and redundant array of independent disks (RAID) storage arrays, as well as specific applications in industrial and some consumer applications.
