ZL40231, ZL40234, ZL40241 and ZL40260 provide customers with single-ended and differential fanout buffers with hardware control pins, while the ZL40230, ZL40235 and ZL40240 additions to the miSmartBuffer lineup offer flexible single-ended and differential outputs (I/Os) and per output control through a serial port. Features include up to 10 differential outputs, per output and output bank control, ultra-low additive jitter and power supply noise suppression.


Additional key features of the new miClockBuffer products include:

– Up to three inputs/crystal input/inverted micra/high-speed crystal

– Up to 10 low-voltage positive-referenced emitter coupled logic (LVPECL)/low-voltage differential signals (LVDS)/high-speed current steering logic (HCSL)

– 10 low voltage complementary metal oxide semiconductor (LVCMOS) only outputs

– Low skew, and ultra-low additive jitter of 30 fsec RMS (12 kHz to 20 MHz)

– Hardware control pins


The new miSmartBuffer devices also add in features such as:

– Serial port interface

– Integer dividers on the LVCMOS outputs

– Software control of outputs

– Ultra-low additive jitter of 30 fsec RMS(12 kHz to 20 MHz
