Texas Instruments Incorporated (Texas Instruments), a manufacturer of semiconductors, has introduced a new family of eight positive emitter-coupled logic (PECL) buffers, translators and splitters for clock and data management. These devices provide flexibility by operating at various power supplies of 2.5 V, 3.3 V and 5 V. The SN65LVEP11 is a 3-GHz differential, 1 to 2 fanout buffer that can operate in either a 3.3-V or 2.5-V power supply that enables lower power consumption designs.

The SN65EL11 buffer provides higher data throughput up to 67% faster than competing solutions. The new PECL family is offered in a full range of speed grades from 430 MHz up to 3 GHz to meet the needs of a broad range of communications, test and measurement, and medical applications.

PECL family features:

Industry-standard packages, footprints and pinouts;

Speeds ranging from 430MHz to 3GHz;

Support for 2.5V, 3.3V and 5V supply voltages.

PECL family benefits:

Full range of speeds provides designers flexibility;

Power consumption can be saved by moving to lower Vcc platforms.
