"Versatile Clock to Generate Output Frequencies from 1 and 120MHz in 1kHz steps."
Ottawa, ON - September 22, 2003 - Kaben Research Inc., a developer of mixed-signal, intellectual property (IP) blocks for wireless manufacturers, announced today that they have licensed to a lead customer a Programmable Clock Generator in TSMC 0.18mm pure digital CMOS.
The Kaben KR-PCG-120-TS18 Clock Generator accepts a crystal frequency input from 10 to 50MHz and generates a low jitter output between 1 and 120MHz in steps of less than 1kHz. The output frequency range is from 12 times to 1/64th of the crystal reference frequency. The cell can be used to clock Microprocessors, DSPs, Digital Logic, A/Ds, and D/As. The product is designed in a process that has only digital CMOS available which allows the IP cell to be dropped into low cost designs.
"Kaben's Clock Generator IP block enables SoC manufacturers to use a single low-power design across most of their products." said Seste Dell'Aera, Kaben's VP Marketing. "The fine resolution and wide frequency range offer a tremendous flexibility to the system designer."
Kaben Research is an IP company focused on design, development, and licensing of mixed-signal building blocks that are key to creating future SoC products. The company delivers high-performance, proven IP blocks to SoC manufacturers in the wireless communications market that significantly reduce risk, cost, and time to market.
