According to Maxim, the DS3104 is the industry's first timing IC to provide full carrier-class clock synchronization for new Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) line cards and mixed SONET/SDH/SyncE line cards. The DS3104 employs Maxim's DSP-based digital PLL (DPLL) technology.
Key DS3104 innovations include two independent DPLLs for bidirectional frequency conversion between Ethernet clock rates and SONET/SDH rates, and complete support for all 1G, 10G, and 100M Ethernet MII clock rates. Applications include line cards and other subsystems in a wide variety of wireline and wireless systems, including ADMs, digital cross-connects, carrier-class switches and routers, wireless base stations, DSLAMs and multiservice access nodes.
