High speed servers, switches, and storage devices need low jitter, low noise clocks to keep massive amounts of data flowing seamlessly through data pipes. Selecting the right timing devices is critical for the proper functioning of these high speed data processing appliances.

In our day-to-day lives, we’re generating and consuming more data than ever. All it takes is a quick look around the house to see how things have changed – high-speed broadband, smart TVs, thermostats, lights, doors and more create and serve massive amounts of data.  In order to manage these high data rates, it’s critical to better understand and rethink our timing technologies. In this paper:

  • High data rates require good timing
  • Challenges to achieving good timing
