SiTime Corp.'sSiT9107 is a high frequency,
programmable, differential oscillator for networking, storage and industrial
applications. The SiT9107 is used in high performance applications such as
Ethernet Switches, Solid-State Drives (SSD), Optical Line Terminals (OLT), RAID
controllers and Host Bus Adapters (HBA), Servers, Memories and PCIe-based
embedded applications. The SiT9107 supports common protocols such as Gigabit
and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, SAS, SATA, DDR, microprocessor and FPGA clocking.
The key features of the SiT9107:
Wide frequency range (220 to 800 MHz) that supports a
large range of applications
Configurable output signaling level, LVPECL, LVDS,
CML, HCSL, eliminates need for external level translators
Frequency stability, Â±10, Â±15, Â±20, Â±25 and Â±50 PPM
Up to 5 decimal
places of frequency accuracy, provides most precise, customized clock
1.8V operating voltage supports newer ASSPs, while 2.5
and 3.3V are also available.
Available in industry standard footprints (5.0 x 3.2 and
7.0x5.0 mm) for easy replacement of existing quartz-based solutions.
The SiT9107 is available now in volume production. The devices are priced at
$7.13 in 1000 units for frequencies up to 500 MHz, 50 PPM stability, commercial
temperature range in a 5.0 x 3.2 package.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
