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.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
