Pericom Launches HiFlex(TM) Clock Generator Family
Innovative Solution Offers High Performance for Cloud Computing and
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Pericom Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEM), a leading supplier of high-speed
connectivity, signal-conditioning and timing solutions, today
introduced a new family of HiFlex Clock Generators offering multiple
frequency outputs with very low jitter, high integration, and high
flexibility -- perfect for use in networking, cloud computing, and
other high performance platforms that require multiple frequencies
and outputs. The new HiFlex clock generator family is designed to
drive down the Bill of Materials (BOM) cost and to increase board
space utilization of the timing tree. By integrating multiple
components of a timing tree into a single clock generator IC, instead
of using crystal oscillators (XOs) and fan out buffers, Pericom's
family of HiFlex clock generators enables cost savings without
sacrificing the necessary performance of customer designs.
One of the main drivers of growth today in the networking segment is
the growth in cloud computing and services. According to Forrester
Research, cloud computing is projected to be a $241 billion market by
2020 and the infrastructure market has a significant portion of it.
Pericom's HiFlex clocks can provide the high performance timing
needed for infrastructure, enterprise networking, and data center
servers that are part of the cloud-computing ecosystem. Various Tier
1 networking system manufacturers in North America, Asia and Japan
have already deployed this family of innovative products in their
"Timing is absolutely critical in high performance systems to ensure
everything is in sync," said Wendy Zhou, marketing director for
Pericom's Timing group. "Traditional XOs can provide very good jitter
performance, but lack flexibility in terms of output frequency,
number of outputs, and also increase board space and costs. Pericom's
HiFlex clock family provides a better alternative to system engineers
who want a simple and easy design clock tree that meets all
Key features and benefits of the HiFlex Clock IC family include:
multiple frequency outputs specific to key protocols, user
frequencies across different output protocol types via
pin strapping or I2C, jitter performance comparable to traditional XO
products, and reduced BOM cost and board space.
