The Si533xx family was designed to provide a high level of integration and flexibility without compromising performance. The Si53302 device is the industry’s lowest jitter multi-format buffer (100 fs RMS typical), providing performance comparable to best-in-class fixed-format buffers. In addition, the device’s 2:1 input mux provides more than 60 dB of noise isolation between clock inputs, significantly minimizing cross-talk-induced jitter and guaranteeing low noise operation in applications requiring two input clocks. On-chip supply voltage regulation provides high power supply noise rejection, ensuring robust low-jitter operation alongside FPGAs, ASICs, SoCs and PHYs.“We’ve applied innovative mixed-signal techniques to create an entirely new category of clock buffers specifically designed to address the headaches typically associated with clock tree design,” said Mike Petrowski, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs’ timing products. “The Si533xx family redefines clock buffer functionality by encompassing a high level of integration and universal, any-format translation without performance compromises, giving developers greater flexibility to innovate and simplify their system designs.” Pricing and Availability Volume production quantities of Silicon Labs’ Si533xx clock buffers are available now in a variety of package types beginning at $0.80 (USD) in 10,000-unit quantities. The Si533xx family is supported by the Si53301/4-EVB development kit populated with a 2-input, 6-output Si53301 universal buffer/translator. This development kit can be used to evaluate the performance of all Si533xx products and is easily configured via jumpers with no external software required. Silicon Labs also provides an online cross reference tool to identify footprint-compatible and functionally equivalent Si533xx buffers that are replacements for traditional buffer devices.
