UG329: Si5332-8IX-EVB User's Guide
The Si5332-8IX-EVB is used for evaluating the Si5332-GM2 grade E, F, G or H embedded crystal Low Jitter Any-Frequency Clock Generator. The Si5332-GM2 grade E, F, G
or H embedded crystal uses the patented MultisynthTM technology to generate up to
eight independent clock frequencies each with 0 ppm synthesis error. The Si5332-8IXEVB has two independent input clocks. The Si5332-8IX-EVB can be controlled and configured using the Clock Builder Pro™ (CB Pro™) software tool.
• Powered from USB port or external power
• Embedded 50 MHz XTAL allows free-run
mode of operation on the Si5332 or up to 2
input clocks for synchronous clocking.
• CBPro™ GUI programmable VDD supply
allows device to operate from 3.3, 2.5, or
1.8 V.
• CBPro GUI programmable VDDO supplies
allow each of the 10 outputs to have its
own power supply voltage selectable from
3.3, 2.5, or 1.8 V.
• CBPro GUI-controlled voltage, current, and
power measurements of VDD and all
VDDO supplies.
• SMA connectors for input and output
clocks. | Building a more connected world.

Si5332 CBPro™
2. Si5332 CBPro™
The Si5332 is intended to be part of the CBPro software and this initial software release “showcases” that trait. This software contains:
1. An EVB GUI that communicates and controls the EVB by allowing the user to set VDD supplies.
2. The ability to modify frequency plan (from the starting point CBPro file provided with this limited release) from an existing CBPro
