Mouser Electronics has announced that it is now stocking 9FGVxxx synthesizers and 9DBVxxx buffers from Integrated Device Technology. These new IDT clock devices comprise the lowest-power PCI Express timing family.
The IDT 9FGVxxx synthesizers and 9DBVxxx buffers have been designed to offer power savings and integration for communications, computing, and consumer markets. These PCI Express timers consume less than 50mW of power – less than one-tenth the power required by previous solutions. The ultra-low power consumption helps to reduce heat dissipation and so eases cooling requirements in large-scale cloud computing applications.
The PFGVxxx / 9DBVxxx devices meet PCIe Gen 1, Gen 2, and Gen 3 performance requirements, allowing for long-lifecycle designs that customers can re-use through several generations of their products. Most members of this new timing family also feature a selectable SMBus address so that multiple devices can seamlessly share the same SMBus segment without the cumbersome additional logic that is often required with other solutions.
