This is the evaluation board for the Renesas 5P49V59xx VersaClock 5 family of programmable clock generators. With RMS phase jitter less than 0.7 picoseconds over the full 12 kHz to 20 MHz integration range, the device meets the stringent jitter requirements of PCI ExpressR Gen 1/2/3, USB 3.0, and 1G/10G Ethernet. VersaClock 5 ideal for high-performance consumer, networking, industrial, computing, and data-communications applications. 

Note that the evaluation board for the VersaClock 5 family is based around the 5P49V5901, which contains a superset of functionality for the other family members. 


  • 4 Differential Outputs capable of generating any output frequency using  Renesas Timing CommanderTM software
  • SMA connectors for outputs
  • When the board is connected to a PC running Renesas Timing Commander Software through USB, the device can be configured and programmed to generate frequencies with best-in-class performance
  • The 25MHz crystal installed on the board can source a reference frequency to the device when CLKIN/CLKINB is not used.
