The webcast covers the fundamentals of clock
synthesis and distribution. It covers the various types of phase-locked loops
(PLLs), the key features of these devices, and which end market they are
designed for. Concepts such as reference switchover, holdover, phase noise,
jitter, output drivers, and signal integrity will be covered.

Who should attend?
Students and engineers new to the
field, as well as those more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on
this or any other part of the signal chain, design, and layout.
