- Additive Output Jitter 65fsRMS (ADC SNR Method)
- EZSync™, ParallelSync™ Multichip Synchronization
- Eleven Independent, Low Noise Outputs with Programmable Coarse Digital and Fine Analog Delays

The LTC6953 is a high performance, ultralow jitter, JESD204B/JESD204C clock distribution IC. The LTC6953’s eleven outputs can be configured as up to five JESD204B/JESD204C subclass 1 device clock/SYSREF pairs plus one general purpose output or simply eleven general purpose clock outputs for non-JESD204B/JESD204C applications. Each output has its own individually programmable frequency divider and output driver. All outputs can also be synchronized and set to precise phase alignment using individual coarse half cycle digital delays and fine analog time delays.
For applications requiring more than eleven total outputs, multiple LTC6953s can be connected together with LTC6952s and LTC6955s using the EZSync or ParallelSync synchronization protocols.

Linear Technology’s DC2026 (called the Linduino™ One) is compatible with the Arduino Uno microcontroller board. Arduino hardware consists of an Atmel microcontroller with a bootloader allowing quick in-circuit firmware updates. The software is a simple programming environment based on the AVRGCC compiler. This platform is popular because it is easy to use, both the hardware and software are open source, and it can be programmed in C. We find it an ideal way to demonstrate and distribute libraries for integrated circuits that have digital interfaces such as Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) and Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). While the Linduino One is Arduino-compatible, it is not produced by the official Arduino team, and they do not receive any monetary support from this board. Please, consider supporting them by purchasing other items from: http://store.arduino.cc
Demonstration circuit 2610A features the LTC6953, an Ultralow Jitter, 4.5GHz Clock Distributor with 11 Outputs and JESD204B Support.
By default, the DC2610A is powered from a single 3.3V supply. An option is provided to power to the DC2610A from dual supplies, allowing for the LTC6953’s output supply pins to connect to an LTC Silent Switcher® and the LTC6953 input supply pin to connect to a low noise LDO.
All differential inputs and seven of the differential outputs are populated with 0.5” spaced SMA connectors. These outputs are AC-coupled with 50Ω transmission lines making them suitable to drive 50Ω impedance instruments. The remaining four differential outputs are terminated with 100Ω.
The LTC6953’s EZSync™ and SYSREF request functions are made available via the LTC6953 SPI interface or the EZS_SRQ SMA/turret connectors. The DC2609A, DC2610A, and DC2611A SMA placement was designed for ease of connection for all multi-part synchronization and SYSREF request modes.
A calibration path is provided to aid in accurate LTC6953 propagation delay measurements.
A DC2026 USB serial controller board is used for SPI communication with the LTC6953, controlled by the supplied LTC6952Wizard™ software.
