Product Details

The AD9558 is a low loop bandwidth clock multiplier that provides jitter cleanup and synchronization for many systems, including synchronous optical networks (OTN/SONET/SDH). The AD9558 generates an output clock synchronized to up to four external input references. The digital phase-locked loop (PLL) allows reduction of input time jitter or phase noise associated with the external references. The digitally controlled loop and holdover circuitry of the AD9558 continuously generates a low jitter output clock even when all reference inputs have failed.

The AD9558 operates over an industrial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. If a smaller package is required, refer to the AD9557 for the two-input/two-output version of the same device.


  • Network synchronization, including synchronous Ethernet and SDH to OTN mapping/demapping
  • Cleanup of reference clock jitter
  • SONET/SDH/OTN clocks up to 100 Gbps, including FEC
  • Stratum 3 holdover, jitter cleanup, and phase transient control
  • Wireless base station controllers
  • Cable infrastructure
  • Data communications
