Connor-Winfield Corp. has introduced a synchronous clock that works in SDH, SONET and Ethernet. The STC5270, an integrated single-chip solution, complies with ITU-G.813 and Telcordia GR1244 and GR 253.

The STC5270 accepts two reference inputs and generates two independent synchronised output clocks. Reference input frequencies are automatically detected. All reference switches are hitless. Synchronised outputs may be programmed for a variety of SONET, SDH and synchronous Ethernet frequencies.

The clock generator includes a digital phase-locked loop (DPLL), which may operate in freerun, synchronised, and holdover modes. A standard SPI bus provides access to the STC5270's internal control and status registers. The device operates with an external 20MHz OCXO or TCXO as its MCLK.

Other features include better than 0.1ppb hold-over accuracy, programmable loop bandwidth from 0.1-103Hz, and IEEE 1140.1 JTAG boundary scan. The device is available in a TQ100 package.
