The complimentary ClockBuilder Go app for mobile devices simplifies the design process even further. System designers can quickly jumpstart their clock tree designs on their smartphones and tablets by leveraging Silicon Labs' built-in frequency planning algorithms to synthesise virtually any clock frequency. ClockBuilder Go is available today for iOS mobile devices, and Android support will be available later this year.

Rather than waiting months to receive their custom clock orders, system designers simply upload their custom configurations to Silicon Labs through ClockBuilder Pro software. Factory pre-programmed Si534x clock samples ship in two weeks, accelerating the overall product development.

Factory pre-programmed samples of the Si534x are available now in QFN packages as small as 7mmx7mm. Si5341/40 clock generator pricing in 10K quantities ranges from $4.75 to $10.60, and Si534x jitter attenuator 10K pricing ranges from $6 to $29.

Silicon Labs' Si534x family evaluation boards, priced at $200 and $250, enable developers to move quickly from device configuration to detailed performance analysis to custom part number generation in less than five minutes. ClockBuilder Pro software is available from Silicon Labs' website at no charge.
