Micrel launched the dual channel SY89297U delay line IC. The second generation device can be serially programmed to provide 5 ns of delay per channel while running up to 3.2 Gbps/1.6 GHz. The delay is very linear and monotonic, providing precise delay for high-speed applications. The device includes three-pin serial programming to adjust signal delays, making designs simple. Two channels provide more flexibility to the designer. The part is designed to provide 10 ns of signal delay by using both channels. Multiple SY89297Us can be cascaded to generate even higher delay. The product operation is guaranteed over 0ºC to +75ºC and supply voltage of 2.5V ±5 percent. The patented 3-pin internal termination input allows use of the part with any differential (PECL, CML, or LVDS) signals. The device is offered in MLF packaging, which features low inductance and capacitance. The IC is currently available in volume with pricing starting at $9.23 for 1K quantities.
