The AD9545 supports existing and emerging International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standards for the delivery of frequency, phase, and time of day over service provider packet networks, including ITU-G.8262, ITU-T G.812, ITU-T G.813, ITU-T G.823, ITU-T G.824, ITU-T G.825, and ITU-T G.8273.2.
The 10 clock outputs of the AD9545 are synchronized to any one of up to four input references. The digital phase-locked loops (DPLLs) reduce timing jitter associated with the external references. The digitally controlled loop and holdover circuitry continuously generate a low jitter output signal, even when all reference inputs fail.
The AD9545 is available in a 48-lead LFCSP (7 mm × 7 mm) package and operates over the −40°C to +85°C temperature range.
Note that throughout the data sheet, multifunction pins, such as SDO/M5, are referred to either by the entire pin name or by a single function of the pin, for example, M5, when only that function is relevant.
- Global positioning system (GPS), PTP (IEEE 1588), and synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) jitter cleanup and synchronization
- Optical transport networks (OTN), synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH), and macro and small cell base stations
- Small base station clocking, including baseband and radio
- Stratum 2, Stratum 3e, and Stratum 3 holdover, jitter cleanup, and phase transient control

Evaluation Kits (2)
The AD9545 evaluation board is a compact, easy-to-use platform for evaluating all features of the AD9545 dual digital PLL and 1 pps synchronizer. The AD9545 provides high-precision, multi-output clock generator functions, along with two on-chip jitter cleaning digital PLL cores. PLL0 and PLL1 are optimized for high performance synchronous clocking applications such as GPS, IEEE1588v2, Synchronous Ethernet, OTN, and next generation wireless baseband protocols. The PLLs are fully configurable via serial port control as well as configurable via an external EEPROM for power on ready configurations.
The AD9545 can output up to 5 differential clock signals, plus two single-ended clocks driven by a mix of two high performance digital PLLs, plus two high-precision NCOs (numerically controlled oscillators). 12 total outputs and 4 reference inputs are accessible on the evaluation board.
The output differential transmission line pairs use 50Ω single ended characteristic impedance and are connected to standard edge launch SMA connectors. The AD9545/PCBZ has a fully configurable power supply to allow the user to evaluate the AD9545 while being powered directly by a step down switching regulator or external LDOs. The AD9545 evaluation board uses RoHS-compliant FR-4 material. For convenience, detailed information from the AD9545 data sheet has been included here. Use the user guide in conjunction with the data sheet that has been provided by ADI.

The AD-SYNCHRONA14-EBZ is an ideal 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 synchronization in complex systems. It is intended to be used by trained professionals in a laboratory environment, and not intended 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 made available free of charge.
The AD-SYNCHRONA14-EBZ comes in a 1U mechanical form factor. Using popular industry connector SMA and TwinAX interfaces most labs will already have the needed cables.
With its internal OCXO it can operate in standalone mode or be fed from a choice of external sources, such as 3 separate high speed differential clock inputs, a 10MHz reference and 1PPS. This flexibility combined with the capability to select either of the internal VCXO options of 100MHz or 122.88MHz, gives almost unlimited choice for the frequency of interest and accuracy needed for a wide variety of application areas.
