Evaluate devices to your product's input-clock specifications. Quick. Easy. Online.
If your product requires a low-noise input clock to operate properly, our service makes it easy to verify compliance to its input-clock specifications. We'll help you recommend better, and more, timing devices to customers. This ensures your products perform their best in the field, and allows system vendors more flexibility in their designs. You can even publish approved-vendor lists (AVLs) in the JitterLabs app to notify customers of recommended devices.
The traditional approach to evaluating products is to compare your product's input-clock requirements with timing-device data sheet specifications. We think the reverse makes makes more sense. That is, verifying a device's performance complies with your product's specifications.
This places you in the driver's seat, because it requires manufacturers to show compliance to your specifications, rather than the other way around.
Due to the huge variety of timing device and product combinations possible, there hasn't been a way to automate this on a large scale, until now. Using our service, any business can create a specification for their system or product, and evaluate it to any timing device having a Test Report.
The process is simple: create a specification, apply it to one or more Test Reports, and identify compliant devices. And it's all done online, quick and easy.
Simplify your evaluations by requesting Test Reports from timing vendors today.
Create a specification in the JitterLabs app to capture your product's clock-input requirements.
Then, apply it to Test Reports to determine compliance. Or, share your specification with suppliers or customers so they can recommend compliant devices.
Specifications can be created from a wide variety of test metrics, as shown in the following drop-down lists.
Specifications written by the community are stored in a Specification Library. When you create a specification, your organization owns it, and can share share it (or not) with other organizations that you choose. Sharing a specification is a great way to establish technical leadership in the community. Many clock/timing specifications already exist for various products and industry standards, including the following from JitterLabs.
Applying an existing specification to Test Reports to determine compliance is an easy way to compare device performance, apples-to-apples. Want to change the tests or limits in a specification? Feel free to copy and modify any publicly shared specification owned by JitterLabs. For other organizations, you just need to obtain their permission first.
Oh, and a function library exists as well, with all the same features.
After applying a specification to one or more Test Reports, you can view (and save) the results as a Compliance Statement. Use these official statements as part of your internal business process for qualifying devices to support your products.
For example, the Stratix-V-REFCLK specification captures Altera's Stratix V FPGA data sheet requirements for a reference-clock. Click on the link to view a Compliance Statement that evaluates four devices to this specification.
After you identify devices that meet your requirements, inform customers by adding the devices to your Approved Vendor Lists (AVLs) directly within the JitterLabs app.
For products that filter input clock jitter, you can easily create functions in the JitterLabs app to describe their jitter filtering characteristics.
Then, securely share your functions with customers so they can more accurately analyze the effect of clock jitter on their systems, and optimize their designs.
First, second, and third-order s-domain (Laplace) functions can be created, for low and high pass characteristics.
Creating and sharing functions helps customers optimize their timing margins, making system failures in the field less likely.
