Next-generation reference clock requirements in telecommunications, wireless infrastructure, optical modules, broadcast video, medical imaging and other industrial markets are largely adopting FPGAs, ASICs, and SoCs that use 56G or 112G SerDes to support higher data rates and bandwidth capabilities. There is a direct correlation between SerDes bandwidth increases, and RMS phase jitter requirements on the associated reference clock. As SerDes speed increases, the RMS phase jitter performance needed on the reference clock decreases. In this webinar, David will provide an overview of reference clock requirements on the latest generation of FPGAs, optical DSPs, Coherent DSPs, and network processors. He will highlight the key features from the Si54x Ultra Series XO and VCXO family that ensure reference clock RMS phase jitter performance remain within maximum limits; thus providing system designers added margin in their system jitter budgets.
