11.3 Gbps 12 × 12 Digital Crosspoint Switch
Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADN4612 is a 12 × 12 asynchronous, protocol agnostic, digital crosspoint switch with 12 differential PECL-/CML-compatible inputs and 12 differential CML outputs.

The ADN4612 is optimized for nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) signaling with data rates of up to 11.3 Gbps per port. Each port offers programmable input equalization, loss-of-signal detection, programmable output swing, and output preemphasis/deemphasis.

The ADN4612 nonblocking switch core implements a 12 × 12 crossbar and supports independent channel switching through the serial control interface. The ADN4612 has low latency and very low channel-to-channel skew.

The ADN4612 is packaged in an 88-lead LFCSP package and operates from −40°C to +85°C.

Product Details

The ADN4612 User Guide describes the setup and general usage of ADN4612 evaluation board.


Each input and output pair is ac coupled using a 0.1uF capacitor. All microstrip (top layer) transmission lines use RoHS compliant, Rodgers 4003 dielectric. The differential transmission line pairs are 15.5 mils wide with 30+ mil spacing and are designed to have a differential characteristic impedance of 100Ω’s. The strip line (middle layers ) transmission lines are RoHS compliant FR-4 material.

Three variants of the evaluation board allow access to specific I/Os.

See the ADN4612 Evaluation User Guide for complete details.
