Hi Fabrizio:

I didn't check this particular part but you may try Cypress. They seem =
to be big on FCT and slew control. Could you also change your layout to =
add series resistor or AC termination?

I will be in the Design SuperCON. Maybe I'll see you there.

Hello SI engineers,
I am having problems with an IDT 49FCT806BT inverting clock driver, 0.5
micron CMOS technology. I measured the rise time on this device to be
800ps, and this is causing excessive reflections and false clocking. =
anyone know of a vendor who makes a pin compatible FCT806 clock driver,
SSOP package with slew rate control or guaranteed rising edges around =
or longer? I don't need subnanosecond edges in my system, the frequency =
below 50MHz.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Hope to see many of you at Design Supercon next week in Santa Clara.
