Zarlink Releases Single-Chip Gigabit Ethernet Line Card Synchronizer

Zarlink Semiconductor expanded its family of Synchronous Ethernet timing solutions with a new single-chip Gigabit Ethernet line card synchronizer. The new chip provides timing and synchronization for Ethernet line cards in next-generation networking equipment supporting circuit services over IP-based architectures.

The device integrates independent analog and digital PLLs, the device synchronizes with standard telecom and Ethernet clocks, and generates an IEEE 802.3 jitter compliant 25 MHz Gigabit Ethernet output clock.

"Synchronous Ethernet is a key technology as service providers aggressively seek new ways to more efficiently support time-sensitive applications over packet networks," said Darren Ladouceur, marketing manager, Timing and Synchronization, Zarlink Semiconductor.
