Block Diagram PI6CG18xQ and PI6CB18xQ

Our broad portfolio of automotive Compliant PCIe clock generators and buffers provide various options to cater to your design needs. 

Our latest AEC-Q100 qualified PCIe 4.0 clock generators and buffers provide low power, integrated resistors and wettable flank / sidewalled QFN optimized for the automotive industry.

The PI6CG18xQ is a family of AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified low power PCIe 4.0 clock generators with 2,4 and 8 outputs.

These devices use a 25MHz crystal or CMOS reference input to generate multiple 100MHz HCSL outputs with on-chip terminations. The on-chip termination saves 4 external resistors for each output and board space. An additional buffered reference output is provided to serve as a low noise and synchronous reference.

The PI6CB184Q is an AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified low power PCIe 4.0 clock buffer with 4 outputs. This buffer includes on-chip termination and also individual output enables for improved power management.

Both of these clock generators and buffers are packaged in specially designed wettable/ sidewalled QFN packages to enable Automated Visual Inspection and testing in Automotive production environment.
