Innuos PhoenixUSB reclocker rises
Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Launching at the Rocky Mountain show this month the Innuos PhoenixUSB reclocker is designed to upgrade the performance of network servers by providing three functions. It’s a USB regenerator, a linear power supply and an external master clock with its own linear power supply. The tech behind these elements is derived directly from Innuos’ flagship Statement network server, one the finest examples of its kind.

 

The key elements of the PhoenixUSB consist of a USB chip regenerating the signal contains no switching regulators. All three independent voltages to the chip originate from an independent linear power supply with further regulation provided by three sets of LT3045 regulators. A 3PPB OCXO clock running directly at 24MHz and connected via a board track just a couple of inches away from the USB chip. This is so that no precision is lost within cables and connectors, as is the case when using an external master 10MHz clock with an additional 24MHz clock generator. 

 

It has two independent Statement-level linear power supplies, one dedicated to the OCXO clock and the other used for powering the USB chip/5V USB line. While designed to enhance the performance of Innuos servers its USB input means that it should work with a range of network servers. A sample has been requested. 

Retail pricing of the new PhoenixUSB Reclocker will be $3,149 USD, $4,099 CAD, €2,499 Eur, £2,249 GBP.
