How to Build Your Clock Trees … Like a Pro and on the Go

We’ve heard it all before: “I’m facing a really tough clock-tree design challenge. Can I simplify?” “Jitter performance is critical for my application, but I’m not a PLL guru.” “My project schedule is very tight, but I don’t have time to verify clock performance.” “I need custom, factory-programmed clock samples – now!” We have the…

Next generation Internet Infrastructure starts with any frequency, any output clock generators

Don’t be afraid of multiple timing domains and challenging frequencies. Because it doesn’t have to be challenging. We make your timing design simple.  Silicon Labs has developed a new portfolio of clock generators and jitter attenuators optimized for high-speed, frequency-flexible, ultra-low-jitter clock synthesis. These clock devices enable system designers to design “any-port, any-protocol” line cards…

Simplify your timing designs with low power jitter attenuators

Don’t be afraid of multiple timing domains and challenging frequencies. Because it doesn’t have to be challenging. We make your timing design simple. The insatiable demand for bandwidth to support applications such as video streaming and cloud computing is driven telecom service providers to continuously increase network capacity and migrate to higher speed Internet Infrastructure…

Low-Power Embedded Design Tips for Wearables

Wearable devices, from smart watches to portable health and fitness trackers, are changing many aspects of our daily lives. A successful wearable device must deliver the right combination of price, performance, functionality and battery life, as well as a unique look, feel and behavior to differentiate itself from its competitors. To reduce the microcontroller’s impact…

Four key application areas powered by low-power microcontrollers

Microcontrollers have been widely used for smart applications as there are more electronic devices than people on the planet. In this blog post, we asked Greg Hogdson, Director of Marketing for Silicon Labs’ microcontroller products, about his perspective on low-power microcontrollers for four applications areas such as home appliance, LED lighting, automotive and Internet of…

A cross platform approach to embedded development – part 4 : Simplifying embedded development
