Keeping time on 40/100G networks with high-performance clocks

In this Product How-To article, James Wilson of Silicon Labs describes the clocking requirements in next generation 10G to 100G networks using high speed optical links and how the company’s Si5374/Si5375 clock ICs can be used to satisfy the needs for any-frequency synthesis, jitter attenuation, clock generation and clock distribution. Networking service providers are significantly expanding their transmission network …
