San Jose, Calif.Micrel has introduced the SY89835U, a 1:2 low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) fanout buffer featuring internal termination and fail-safe input in a tiny 2-mm x 2-mm 8-pin footprint.
The chip is targeted at clock distribution or data distribution applications in SONET, Fibre Channel clock or Gigabit Ethernet systems.
Total jitter is guaranteed to be less than 10pspk-pk and the skew is guaranteed to be less than 20-ps over supply voltage and temperature.
The chip is 55% smaller, four times faster and 30% less expensive than conventional fail-safe input devices, making it suitable for most low-jitter applications, according to the company.
The SY89835U is currently available in volume with pricing starting at $1.69 for 1,000-unit quantities.
