Jitter Cleaners

Cascade Platform MEMS-based jitter cleaners feature 4 Frac-N PLLs with an integrated VCO and loop filter, flexible input-to-output frequency translation from 1 input to 10 outputs, wide frequency range from 8 kHz to 2.1 GHz, and a rich set of programmable features in a small 9 x 9 mm package. By integrating the MEMS resonator, these devices enable designers to create a clock-system-on-a-chip and eliminate all quality and reliability issues associated with traditional quartz-based clocks.

  • Always-accurate clock synthesis by eliminating crystal capacitive mismatch
  • Always-reliable startup even at cold temperature and other harsh environmental conditions
  • No jitter degradation because of noise coupling onto a crystal interface
  • No activity dips/frequency jumps inherent to quartz
  • 10x more resistant to vibration and board bending
