San Jose, Calif. Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has announced sample availability of a single-chip solution that addresses the timing and electromagnetic interference (EMI) reduction requirements of notebook PCs. Cypress's new CY28442, which combines a frequency timing generator and a Peak Reducing EMI Solutions (PREMIS) spread-spectrum clock generator, meets Intel's CK410m and CK-SSCD specifications and definitions for its low-power Alviso platform for notebook PCs.
Developed to meet the growing demands on system clocks as a result of faster processors, wide-screen displays, DVD burners and state-of-the-art graphics, Cypress has combined its high-performance reference clock that supports bus speeds up to 800 MHz with high-performance EMI reduction technology to deliver best-in-class signal integrity and lowest frequency jitter in one package, said the company.
The CY28442 combines a system main clock generator that is designed to generate all frequency and timing signals with a spread-spectrum clock generator, which is a requirement for an Alviso-based notebook PC. The device supports all the timing requirements for the processor, memory controllers, graphics, USB, Serial ATA and PCI Express. It also integrates programmable spread-spectrum technology to help reduce EMI across the entire system. It also enables designers to select multiple combinations of processor frequency and spread-spectrum clocking features through the I2C programmable interface.
Packaged in a 56-pin TSSOP, the CY28442 is priced at $1.80 each in quantities of 1,000.
