Analog Devices’ multichannel system clocking device simplifies clock distribution and multi-channel synchronisation

The AD-SYNCHRONA14-EBZ is a self-contained device to use in evaluation and prototyping of applications that need a highly accurate frequency and phase-controlled source clock. It is designed around the Analog Devices AD9545 and HMC7044 and greatly simplifies clock distribution and multi-channel synchronisation in complex systems.

The AD-SYNCHRONA14-EBZ phase-controlled source clock is intended to be used by trained professionals in a laboratory environment, and not as an end product for commercial use. It can be taken as a complete reference design and customised as required for any end customer applications. Full design details are available free of charge.

The device comes in a 1U mechanical form factor and uses industry-standard SMA and TwinAX connectors that are commonly found in labs. Its applications include: high accuracy reference clock distribution; systems clocked from a single source; clocks derived from 100MHz or 122.88MHz; phased array systems, radar, EW, satcoms, SDR; bench equipment; and remote controlled operation.

Analog Devices’ evaluation board can be purchased from Farnell in EMEA, Newark in North America and element14 in APAC.

Analog Devices is a semiconductor company that specialises in data conversion, signal processing and power management technology. It is headquartered in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
