Silicon Labs Launches SyncE-Compliant Clock

Silicon Labs introduced a low jitter, low power timing solution for high-speed networking equipment based on the Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) standard.

The new Si5328 precision clock multiplier and jitter attenuator boasts jitter performance as low as 263 femtoseconds RMS and is fully compliant with ITU-T G.8262 SyncE clock requirements including EEC Options 1 and 2. The SyncE clock can generate any output frequency ranging from 8 kHz to 808 MHz and from any input frequency from 8 kHz to 710 MHz. 

“As today’s telecom infrastructure rapidly migrates from legacy standards to SyncE, equipment manufacturers require fully SyncE-compliant timing solutions that not only offer low jitter performance but also reduce design complexity and power consumption,” said Mike Petrowski, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs’ timing products. “Silicon Labs’ new Si5328 clock multiplier offers the most advanced SyncE timing solution available, giving designers an unparalleled margin in jitter performance, BOM cost, footprint and energy efficiency.”
