Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has announced the availability of its FastEdge family of high-performance clock and data drivers that operate at signal rates more than 1.5GHz.

The FastEdge family includes seven buffers featuring a range of fan-out and divider ratios. Each device is implemented with a fully differential architecture designed to achieve sub-1ps intrinsic jitter. This performance enables designers to distribute signals over long transmissions lines, across backplanes, or between linecard or server racks, with minimal impact on total timing budget.

Tunc Cenger, marketing manager for Timing Technology Division, said, "The FastEdge family customizes a single base die with metal masks to implement a variety of clock and data drivers. In addition to flexibility, FastEdge devices offer designers a range of high-performance features, including a maximum of 1ps root-mean-square (RMS) deterministic/intrinsic jitter, <300ps output rise/fall time, 50ps maximum output-to-output skew, and 400ps propagation delay [typical]."

The CY2DP3110 is offered in 32 TQFP, the CY2PP318 in 28 PLCC, the CY2PP3115, CY2DP3120 and CY2PP3220 in 52 TQFP, the CY2PP3210 in 32 TQFP, and the CY2DP314 in 20 SSOP, all with prices ranging from $6.75 to $12.95 per unit in 1,000-unit quantities.
