IDT embedded clock

Integrated Device Technology (IDT) has introduced a new family of embedded clocks designed for any computing system that is hidden from view and runs a RTOS. Such systems include high-end printers, home routers, automotive infotainment systems, outdoor communications equipment, industrial temperature-rated motherboards and rugged notebooks.

The IDT embedded clocks have a guaranteed life cycle of at least five years and up to seven yearsmuch longer than traditional PC clocksproviding IDT customers with an added level of reliability.

The new family features embedded clocks that support various standard chip sets used in today's embedded applications. The IDT embedded clocks provide a single-chip solution for systems using today's standard chipsets, helping save board space and giving designers of embedded systems greater flexibility. The new IDT devices also provide highly accurate outputs supporting serial ATA and PCIe. All of the new embedded clocks are SMBus programmable and feature spread spectrum to reduce EMI, providing increased reliability and improved signal integrity.

The embedded clocks are available now, in various packages, ranging from 48 to 72 pins and including SSOP, TSSOP and MLF package types. Many of the devices are also offered in industrial temperature range versions.
