IDT Announces 1.5 Volt PCI Express® Clock Buffer Family Offering Industry-leading Space and Power Savings
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Integrated Device Technology (News - Alert), Inc. (IDT®)
(NASDAQ:IDTI) today announced the expansion of its leading PCIe timing
portfolio with the industry's first 1.5 V PCI
Express (PCIe®) buffer family. IDT's new U-series
ultra-low power PCIe buffers operate from the same supply voltage as
modern systems-on-chip (SoCs) and field programmable gate arrays
(FPGAs), enabling designers to use the same power rail, thus reducing
system complexity, physical size, and power consumption.
The 9DBU buffers are offered in 2 to 9-output configurations to address
virtually any PCIe application. Both non-PLL fan out and PLL
zero-delay-buffer modes are supported.
"IDT has consistently led the timing industry in both performance and
power, and the latest family of devices furthers our leadership
position," said Dave Shepard, vice president and general manager of
Timing and RF at IDT. "SoCs and FPGAs are moving to lower supply
voltages and IDT is extending its PCIe timing solutions portfolio to
address this trend. Our 1.5 V solutions take advantage of the
low-voltage power savings, while simultaneously enabling customers to
consolidate power rails to reduce the complexity of their systems. The
new timing solutions complement IDT's V-series of 1.8 V PCIe clocks for
communications, computing, and consumer markets."
Device options include external or internal terminations, allowing
designers to choose between maximum flexibility with external
termination circuitry, or maximum space savings using internal
terminations. The entire family operates from a 1.5 V supply, resulting
in the industry's lowest power consumption for PCIe timing devices, with
eight-output devices using a mere 40 milliwatts - reducing cooling
requirements and lowering operating costs.
The 1.5 V U-series devices are pin-compatible with IDT's widely-adopted
1.8 V V-series, allowing for easy substitution as SoC operating voltages
continue to drop. The 9DBU buffers are compliant with PCIe Gen 1, 2, and
3 so designers can use the same component through several generations of
