The MAX9424-MAX9427 3GHz LVPECL-to-LVECL translators from Maxim Integrated Products offer 0.3ps of jitter and 10ps of channel-to-channel skew, enabling them to be used in clock and data distribution applications in automatic test equipment, CO switches, networking switches and routers, and SONET/SDH communication applications.

The translators accept four differential LVPECL signals and translate them to differential LVECL output signals. The four channels can operate synchronously with an external clock, or independently, determined by the state of the SEL input. The also have integrated I/O termination to reduce external component counts.

The MAX9424 has open inputs and open-emitter outputs, while the MAX9425 has open inputs and 50-ohm series outputs. The MAX9426 has 100-ohm differential input impedance and open-emitter outputs. The MAX9427 also has a 100-ohm differential input impedance and 50-ohm series outputs.

The MAX9424-MAX9427 operate from two supplies2.375V to 5.5V VCC for the input stage and -2.0V to -5.5V for the outputs. They are rated for operation at a temperature range of -400C to 850C and are shipped in 32-pin TQFP and thermally-enhanced QFN packages, with a 5-by-5mm footprint.

Prices start at $17.46 (1000-up).
