Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) has unveiled a new family of PC clock devices targeting next-generation desktop PC platforms for the performance and mainstream markets.

The product family includes the CV115C PLL-based PC clock device that enables a complete and independent control of key clock circuits within the system, resulting in increased flexibility and system performance.

Kevin Walsh, director of strategic marketing for timing solutions division, said, "The CV115C PC clock satisfies the stringent requirements of the high-performance, next-generation desktop PC market." The company also said that this new device is the only product on the market to offer independent clocking for PCI Express, making it an appropriate fit for next-generation desktop PC platforms.

In addition to independent clocking for PCI Express, the CV115C PC clock also offers independent clocking of CPU, SATA (Serial ATA) and USB interfaces, allowing each clock to be individually optimized within the system.

A new VDD-suspend pin allows programming to be maintained in power-down mode, with power consumption <1mA. The CV115C architecture also incorporates programming that enables a linearly scalable frequency adjustment as opposed to the commonly used discrete stepping approach. In addition, with independent spread-spectrum control (SSC), each of the three SSC-capable PLLs within the device can be programmed independently to reduce EMI within the system.

Pricing for the CV115C starts at 85 cents each in 10,000-unit quantities. Rounding out its portfolio of PC clock devices, the company has also unveiled a suite of three PLL-based PC clocks that are also targeted at the next-generation desktop PC market. These devices start at 75 cents each in 10,000-unit quantities.
