Product data sheet
1. General description
The PCK9447 is a 3.3 V or 2.5 V compatible, 1 : 9 clock fan-out buffer targeted for high
performance clock tree applications. With output frequencies up to 350 MHz, and output
skews less than 150 ps, the device meets the needs of most demanding clock
The PCK9447 is speciﬁcally designed to distribute LVCMOS compatible clock signals up
to a frequency of 350 MHz. Each output provides a precise copy of the input signal with
near zero skew. The output buffers support driving of 50 Ω terminated transmission lines
on the incident edge: each is capable of driving either one parallel terminated or two
series terminated transmission lines.
Two selectable independent LVCMOS compatible clock inputs are available, providing
support of redundant clock source systems. The PCK9447 CLK_STOP control is
synchronous to the falling edge of the input clock. It allows the start and stop of the output
clock signal only in a logic LOW state, thus eliminating potential output runt pulses.
Applying the OE control will force the outputs into high-impedance mode.
All inputs have an internal pull-up or pull-down resistor preventing unused and open inputs
from ﬂoating. The device supports a 2.5 V or 3.3 V power supply and an ambient
temperature range of −40 °C to +85 °C. The PCK9447 is pin and function compatible but
performance-enhanced to the PCK947.
