Overview

Description

The RC31xxxA (RC31008A and RC31012A) are small-form factor, fully integrated, low-power, high-performance jitter attenuators with network synchronization capabilities. The family supports JEDEC JESD204B/C for converter synchronization and SyncE for network-based synchronization. The RC31xxxA are ideal for driving converter circuits in wireless and wireline infrastructure, data center equipment, and instrumentation applications. The devices are members of Renesas' high-performance VersaClock®7 family

Up to 27 configurations reusable across multiple designs may be stored in on-chip One-Time Programmable (OTP) memory or external I2C EEPROM. Redundant input available for backup and used as reference clock where needed.
