APRIL 2, 2009 -- Hittite Microwave Corp. (search Lightwave for Hittite), a supplier of complete MMIC-based solutions for communication and military markets, has introduced four new high-speed logic connectorized modules, which allow designers to address applications requiring data transmission rates up to 50 Gbps and clock rates as high as 43 GHz. The company says the modules are appropriate for OC-768 and SDH STM-256 equipment, short, intermediate, and long-haul optical transmitter modules, and broadband test and measurement applications.

The modules include:

  • The HMC-C060, a D-type flip-flop connectorized module that serves as an alternate to Inphi's 50700DF, supporting data transmission rates up to 43 Gbps and clock frequencies up to 43 GHz. The module supports both positive and negative edge triggering. Inputs are terminated with 50 Ω to ground and may be either AC or DC coupled. The differential outputs may be either AC or DC coupled. Propagation delay is typically 200 ps; rise and fall times are less than 10 ps. The HMC-C060 operates from a -3.3-V DC supply, exhibits 2 ps of deterministic jitter, and consumes 580 mW.
  • The HMC-C061, a double edge triggered D-type flip-flop connectorized module that serves as an alternate to Inphi's 50705DT, supporting data transmission rates up to 50 Gbps. The device operates at half the sampling frequency of the applied data rate with a maximum possible clock rate of 25 GHz for a 50-Gbps input data rate. During normal operation, data is transferred to the outputs on both the positive and the negative edges of the clock. All inputs to the module are terminated with 50 Ω to ground and may be either AC or DC coupled. The differential outputs may be either AC or DC coupled. Propagation delay is typically 200 ps; rise and fall times are less than 10 ps. The HMC-C061 operates from a -3.3-V DC supply, exhibits 1.5 ps of deterministic jitter, and consumes 690 mW.
  • The HMC-C064, a XOR/XNOR connectorized module that serves as an alternate to Inphi's 50711XR, supporting data transmission rates up to 50 Gbps. The device operates at half the sampling frequency of the applied data rate with a maximum possible clock rate of 25 GHz for a 50-Gbps input data rate. All inputs to the device are terminated with 50 Ω to ground and may be either AC or DC coupled. The differential outputs may be either AC or DC coupled. Propagation delay is typically 230 ps; rise and fall times are less than 10 ps. The HMC-C064 operates from a -3.3-V DC supply, exhibits 2 ps of deterministic jitter, and consumes 550 mW.
  • The HMC-C065 connectorized module, which may be configured to provide AND, NAND, OR, or NOR logic functions while serving as an alternate to Inphi's 50713OR. The module supports data transmission rates up to 50 Gbps, with a maximum clock rate of 25 GHz. All inputs to the device are terminated with 50 Ω to ground and may be either AC or DC coupled. The differential outputs may be either AC or DC coupled. Propagation delay is typically 230 ps; rise and fall times are less than 10 ps. The HMC-C065 operates from a -3.3-V DC supply, exhibits 2 ps of deterministic jitter, and consumes 560 mW.

The HMC-C060, HMC-C061, HMC-C064, and the HMC-C065 are specified for operation from -40° to +70°C and are housed in miniature hermetically sealed modules with 1.85-mm connectors. The modules are available from stock and can be ordered online. Released data sheets are available on the company's web site.
