Silicon Labs (Austin, TX) [NASDAQ: SLAB] has introduced their small PCI Express (PCIe) compliant clock generator targeting consumer and embedded applications where reliability, board space, component count and power consumption are critical design factors. Designed to meet the stringent specifications of the PCIe Generation 1/2/3 standards, the new Si50122 clock leverages Silicon Labs’ low-power PCIe and CMEMS technologies to provide an energy-friendly, crystal-less timing solution for a wide range of applications. Features include:
- Applicability in digital video and still cameras, IP set-top boxes, HD streaming video players, high-definition digital TVs, home entertainment and audio systems, multi-function printers, consumer and small-business storage, and home gateway and wireless access equipment.
- An internal CMEMS resonator that provides a stable frequency reference to the device’s CMOS clock circuitry, eliminating the need for a bulky, discrete quartz crystal.
- Shock and vibration immunity.
- A 2 x 2.5 mm 10-pin TDFN package.
- A low-power “push-pull” HCSL output buffer, which eliminates the need for all external termination resistors at the HCSL outputs.
- 2 low-power 100 MHz differential HCSL outputs and one 25 MHz LVCMOS clock output.
