2.5 V/3.3 V, Four LVPECL Outputs, SiGe Clock Fanout Buffer
The ADCLK944 is an ultrafast clock fanout buffer fabricated on the Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary XFCB3 silicon germanium (SiGe) bipolar process. This device is designed for high speed applications requiring low jitter.
The device has a differential input equipped with center-tapped, differential, 100 Ω on-chip termination resistors. The input can accept dc-coupled LVPECL, CML, 3.3 V CMOS (single-ended), and ac-coupled 1.8 V CMOS, LVDS, and LVPECL inputs. A VREF pin is available for biasing ac-coupled inputs.
The ADCLK944 features four full-swing emitter-coupled logic (ECL) output drivers. For LVPECL (positive ECL) operation, bias VCC to the positive supply and VEE to ground. For ECL operation, bias VCC to ground and VEE to the negative supply.
The ECL output stages are designed to directly drive 800 mV each side into 50 Ω terminated to VCC − 2 V for a total differential output swing of 1.6 V.
The ADCLK944 is available in a 16-lead LFCSP and is specified for operation over the standard industrial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C.

Understand the Effects of Clock Jitter and Phase Noise on Sampled Systems
... Much of your system's performance depends on jitter specifications, so careful assessment is critical.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
