PhaseLink has been a key contributor to the Frequency Generation and Synthesis markets, with many 'First to Market' products. Analog Frequency MultipilerTM, PhasorVTM, PicoPLLTM (world's smallest and lowest power programmable clocks), Triangular Modulation EMI Reduction Clocks, etc., are just some of the broad product line offered by PhaseLink. High performance systems have stringent performance requirements on clock sources. Monolithic clock synthesizer chips from PhaseLink, by virtue of their ability to synthesize multiple frequencies with very high accuracy and multiple simultaneous outputs, provide excellent solutions for these systems, while minimizing the costly inventory of crystal and crystal oscillators.
