MAXIM Integrated Products, represented by Arrow Electronics , has introduced the MAX9377/MAX9378 single-channel, ‘Anything-to-LVPECL/LVDS’ translators with selectable divide-by-4.
The ‘Anything’ input configuration accepts LVPECL, LVDS, CML, and HSTL differential signals and translates them to LVPECL (MAX9377) and LVDS output (MAX9378).
The LVDS output conforms to the ANSI TIA/EIA-644 LVDS standard. The divide-by-four output is controlled by two LVCMOS/LVTTL inputs.
Low 2.0ps(rms) jitter and low 30ps (max) pulse skew make the MAX9377/MAX9378 suitable for clock and data distribution in central office switches, networking switches and routers, and SONET/SDH communications where signal and clock integrity is critical.
The MAX9377/MAX9378 are specified to operate at a minimum of 2.0GHz maximum frequency at >250mV differential output level.
The MAX9377/MAX9378 operate with a +3.3V ±10% supply and are specified over the extended temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). Both devices are packaged in an 8-pin microMAX.
