With a robust set of features including a programmable fractional baud rate generator with prescaler, 16-byte, 32-byte, and 64-byte FIFO choices, and low voltage operating levels the series offers customers a wide variety of design options.
However, on a 400 Gbit/s system, the baud rate doubles, which causes serious distortion of high-speed signals and unstable clocks.
The XR16V2x5x series has numerous features that quickly differentiates it in the marketplace such as a programmable fractional baud rate generator with prescaler, lower operating voltages and 5V tolerant inputs and several FIFO choices," said Levent Ozcolak, division vice president and general manager, Interface Products Division.
For example, the XR16V798's fractional baud rate generator can accept any external clock to generate the desired baud rate; this eliminates the need for an additional clock source and results in saving on both board space and cost.
POCATELLO, Idaho -- AMI Semiconductor (NASDAQ:AMIS), a leading designer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art mixed-signal and digital products for the automotive, medical, industrial, military/aerospace, and high-voltage communication markets, today announced an ASSP family for long-wire and low baud rate Controller Area Network (CAN) applications.
The devices include a programmable baud rate generator capable of dividing a reference clock to produce a 16X times reference clock for the internal transmitter logic which can also be used for the receiver logic.
