Abstract:

EMAG Technologies is proposing to develop a hierarchical, heterodyne, salphasic clock distribution network for the purposes of synchronizing spatially distributed independent oscillators. A low-cost, precise, clock distribution architecture such as the one we are proposing can be used to synchronize hundreds to thousands of distributed processors, radios, or data samplers with sub-picosecond accuracy. This network utilizes a highly resonant design to minimize loss and reduce jitter. The proposed network is targeted to have less than 400 femtoseconds of synchronization jitter over 1m. This clock distribution network is fabricated using standard PCB processes and commercial-off-the-shelf components and therefore can be extremely affordable and easy to integrate.
