Symetrix announces the official release and first shipments of the Lucid GENx192 ultra-low jitter master Clock. The GENx192 provides low-jitter clock via its internal oscillator. It can also distribute an external word clock or AES (clock and/or audio) signal via its 14 outputs.
Internally, the unit can handle standard sampling frequencies up to 192 kHz. The GENx192 distributes external rates between 28 and 216 Hz, and cleans up external clocks with JIF (Jitter Input Filtering) to remove jitter before sending it to the outputs. Its 14 outputs are split into two groups of seven, each capable of generating an independent multiple of the base frequency. The unit is said to be capable of generating two different frequencies, such as 96 kHz and 192 kHz, simultaneously.
A word clock termination-sensing circuit indicates proper or improper termination on rear panel LEDs. The GENx192 is also designed to handle dropouts. If an external clock signal goes away, the GENx192 will switch to its internal oscillator and generate a clock signal.
