SANTA ROSA, CALIF.----February 1, 2011—

Centellax announced today the release of their new SCS16000 series of compact 16 Gb/s stressed clock synthesizers. There are currently 2 models in the series:

SCS16000: 16 Gb/s Stressed clock Synthesizer with sinusoidal jitter injection capability
SCS16000J: 16 Gb/s Stressed Clock Synthesizer with two tone sinusoidal jitter, true random jitter injection, and spread spectrum clock modulation capabilities.
This series has been designed from the ground up optimized for signal integrity applications. The low intrinsic jitter synthesizer provides continuously settable clock frequencies from 0.5 to 16 GHz. Three outputs provide the main stressed clock, along with unstressed delayed and divided clocks derived from the main.

The base model, SCS16000, is ideal for many optical serial data applications, providing a single tone of sinusoidal jitter, settable over a wide range of frequencies and modulation depths. When used as a BERT clock source, the high resolution of the SJ enables precise jitter tolerance testing.

For the electrical serial data applications which require more complex “stress recipes”, the SCS16000J includes two independent sources of sinusoidal along with a broadband true random jitter sources. In addition, all three clock outputs can be modulated with spread spectrum, with a deviation settable up to 10,000 UI.

Series features include:

0.5-16.0 GHz operation
Internal sinusoidal jitter source
Fully programmable clock output parameters
Low intrinsic jitter
Main + Clean (non-jittered) divided and delayed outputs
Single port remote control through USB or GPIB
LabVIEW driver and SCPI command set for easy automation and test system integration
SCS16000J additionally includes:
Two independent SJ Sources
True Gaussian RJ Stress
Spread Spectrum Clock – standard

Santa Rosa, Calif., November 10, 2010 - Centellax announced today they will be partnering with EDN China to give a live webcast in Mandarin Chinese, on Characterizing Crosstalk in High-Density, High-Speed Backplanes. The webcast will outline the detrimental effects of crosstalk, discussing several methods of measuring crosstalk, and details the characterization of crosstalk in a high-density high-speed backplane. BER-based jitter measurements are used to quantify the impairment caused by near-end crosstalk
