Versatile clock distribution module for signals up to 36 GHz.
A powerful and very flexible clock divider/amplifier/distributor which can drive and synchronize multiple ADCs, DACs or multiplexers.
- single-ended and differential IO operation
- programmable reference clock divider
- synchronous clock start/stop
- broadband operation
- adjustable main clock output swing and delay
- single supply voltage
- PLL and crystal oscillator
The CD3 is a universal clock distribution IC, which can amplify, split and delay a clock signal at up to 36 GHz. In addition, the main clock can be stopped and started synchronously.
A primary application of the CD3 is synchronous start of multiple devices, especially DACs, ADCs and multiplexers.
The CD3 incorporates a reference clock divider with a programmable ratio and two differential outputs to drive up to four FPGA clocks.
The CD3 chip is mounted in a ruggedized 60x60mm solid brass module, with all RF signals carried differentially on 2.92mm connectors.
Power is provided via the 2×10 ribbon cable pinhead, which also enables control of the CD3 from a micro controller or FPGA.
