EDGE HIGH-PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS
The Edge118 is a clock distribution chip designed to
take one input signal (IN / IN*) and fan it out 18 times
to identical outputs (OUT / OUT*). The chip is designed
to minimize channel to channel skew and any timing jitter.
The part’s wide fanout is extremely useful in applications
where many distinct copies of a signal are required on
one PC Board, and these signals must all be aligned.
This signal can be distributed without creating a
distribution tree using multiple devices.
The input signal is differential, requiring 250 mV swings
for full performance operation. The inputs are ECL
compatible, but may also be operated over a common
mode voltage range between VEE + 1.3V and VCC – .5V.
The outputs are ECL compatible differential signals with
800 mV voltage swings centered around 1.3V below GND.
The Edge118 is designed to maintain full performance
up to at least 1000 MHz and pass 500 ps pulses.
