New SmartClock Technology For Automotive Timing Requirements

Category articles

To help with tracking of reference clocks to spot possible faults and also supply built-in clock redundancy, brand-new SmartClock attributes have actually been presented to

the AEC-Q100 certified Si5332-AM clock generators On discovery of a mistake problem, SmartClock shares this details with an external system microcontroller or system safety supervisor, which instructs the Si5332-AM to switch to a redundant backup resource, ensuring continued secure system operation. In wellness surveillance applications needing solitary regularity, the brand-new Si5118-AM SmartClock synthesiser can be applied in between the recommendation clock resource and also endpoint.

These innovative new attributes assist attend to the progressively intricate timing challenges faced in automotive networking, advanced chauffeur help systems, automated driving as well as IVI/digital cabin digital designs.

“Automotive electronics styles have commonly depended on quartz crystals as well as oscillators, which are at risk to failing over their operating lifetime. As timing demands come to be more complex within automobile applications, the variety of precision clocks required also remains to raise,” claimed James Wilson, General Manager of timing items at Silicon Labs. “Our SmartClock technology offers system developers with new devices to proactively keep an eye on the health and dependability of their system clocks, boosting the resiliency and also operation of each style.”

The following new items as well as attributes are currently readily available from Silicon Labs:

⦁ SmartClock health surveillance, fault discovery and neighborhood back-up recommendation with new, customisable functions in the Si5332-AM clock generator household. These attributes can be allowed using Silicon Labs ClockBuilder Pro setup software application.
⦁ New standalone Si5118-AM SmartClock Synthesiser
⦁ New 12-output version of the Si5332-AM clock generator
⦁ New 10-output version of the Si53350-AM buffer
