To designers interested in precision clocks:

What level of precision is desirable/useful in clock distribution nets for
boards and systems?

Our current "clock spreader" chip provides 18 outputs, all within a 25
picosecond band with very low jitter. This is the state of the art in the
semiconductor tester world. Are there requirements for this level of timing
precision in applications outside of ATE? We would very much like to hear
thoughts and opinions on this subject.
