Clock ICs Serve Broad Range Of Embedded Applications

A family of embedded clocks is available for use in embedded applications or any computing system that is hidden from view and runs a real-time operating system. Such systems include high-end printers, home routers, automotive infotainment systems, outdoor communications equipment, industrial temperature-rated motherboards and ruggedized notebooks. The embedded clocks have a guaranteed life cycle of at least five years, and up to seven years, which is much longer than traditional PC clocks. Within the family are clock chips that support various standard chip sets used in today’s embedded applications, giving designers a means of saving board space. The devices also provide highly accurate outputs supporting Serial ATA and PCI Express. All of the clocks are SMBus-programmable and feature spread spectrum to reduce electromagnetic interference, providing increased reliability and improved signal integrity. Clocks are available in various packages, ranging from 48 to 72 pins and including SSOP, TSSOP, and MLF package types. Many of the devices are also offered in industrial temperature range versions. The devices are available now and are priced at $2.95 each in lots of 1000. INTEGRATED DEVICE TECHNOLOGY INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 284-8200.
