Enhanced performance ZDBs

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced production availability of its enhanced performance Zero-Delay Buffers (ZDBs) that are claimed to outperform all pin-compatible products for high-speed communications and consumer devices.

According to the company, the CY23EP05 and CY23EP09 PLL clock buffers offer the highest operating frequency, the lowest cycle-to-cycle jitter and the lowest output-to-output skew on the market. These devices offer a powerful performance, with a 220MHz maximum operating frequency and 3.3V or 2.5V operating voltage. In addition, the CY23EP05 and CY23EP09 offer best-in-class performance with 55ps cycle-to-cycle jitter and 100ps output-to-output skew.

Available in Pb-free packages, the enhanced performance ZDBs add to Cypress's portfolio of timing solutions for applications such as multiservice routers and switches, basestations, plasma displays and STBs.

"The introduction of these enhanced performance ZDBs demonstrates Cypress' commitment to pushing the performance envelope for timing solutions," said Wendy Zhou, marketing manager for timing distribution products. "Cypress was first to market with zero-delay buffers and we have extended our leadership, offering our customers the industry's broadest portfolio of timing solutions."

The 5-output CY23EP05 is offered in an 8-pin 150-mil SOIC package, and the 9-output CY23EP09 is housed in a 16-pin 150-mil SOIC or a 4.4mm TSSOP package. Already available, these products are priced at 75 cents and $1.10 each in 1,000-unit quantities, respectively.
