NUREMBERG, Germany -- February 26, 2013

Embedded World Conference - ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving
innovation in energy efficiency, has just released two new clock distribution
ICs.

“The NB6L56 presents the industry with a more advanced 2:1 signal management
solution. It is pin-to-pin compatible with existing products on the market,
but offers greatly enhanced jitter performance, allowing a wider eye opening
so that system reliability can be improved. It handles clock speeds of up to
2.5 GHz and data streams of up to 2.5 Gbps with very low power consumption,”
states Ryan Cameron, vice president of Industrial and Timing Products at ON
Semiconductor. “This is complemented by the NB3F8L3010C, which provides a
compelling combination of cost-effectiveness, flexibility and performance that
make it highly suited to communication infrastructure applications.”

Operating from a supply voltage of 2.5 volts (V) and 3.3 V, the high
performance NB6L56 2:1 clock/data multiplexer’s differential inputs
incorporate internal 50 Ohm (Ω) termination resistors accessed through the VT
pin. This feature allows the device to accept a broad variety of logic level
standards, including low voltage positive emitter coupled logic (LVPECL),
current mode logic (CML) and low voltage differential signaling (LVDS).
Outputs are 800 millivolts (mV) emitter coupled logic (ECL) signals. The
additive clock and data jitter produced is minimal even when operating at 2.5
Gigahertz (GHz) and 2.5 Gigabits/second (Gbps) rates respectively. This makes
the NB6L56 highly optimized for use in SONET, Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber
Channel network infrastructure, as well as other telecom and data
communication applications.

The NB3F8L3010C is a 3:1 multiplexer and a 1:10 clock/data fanout buffer
targeted at networking and communications applications. Operating from a 3.3 V
or 2.5 V core supply, the device has differential inputs which accept LVPECL,
LVDS, host clock signal level (HCSL) and stub series terminated logic (SSTL)
signals. It has a total of 10 single-ended LVCMOS outputs, each capable of
running at 200 megahertz (MHz). Output skew is typically kept to just 10
picoseconds (ps). Both the NB3F8L3010C and NB6L56 devices support an
industrial temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C.

Packaging and Pricing

Both the NB6L56 and the NB3F8L3010C are supplied in a low profile 5 mm x 5 mm
32-pin QFN package. They are priced at $4.92 USD and $4.41 USD respectively
for 1,000 unit quantities.
