This application note introduces features and performance of TI’s first Network Synchronizer Clock device,
LMK05028. The application note highlights the device's unique 3-loop architecture, Hitless Switching with
Phase Cancellation, 1 PPS Phase Lock, Zero Delay Mode, and Robust Reference Detector, and
discusses their value adds in several applications, including wired communications (Switches, Routers and
Optical Transport Networks), wireless communication (Base Band Unit), and industrial applications, such
as smart grids, medical imaging, and broadcast video. In these applications, the LMK05028 operates as a
high-performance clock generator and jitter cleaner with Programmable Loop Bandwidth, while also
offering network synchronization with support for Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) and IEEE 1588.
