The PRL-414B is a 1:4 fanout 50 Ω TTL Line Driver. It is intended for distribution of high-speed clock and logic signals to multiple loads via long lines. The 50 Ω back-terminated outputs can drive long lines with or without 50 Ω load terminations; With 50 Ω load terminations, however, all outputs of the PRL-414B can drive 100 ft of 50 Ω cables at clock rates greater than 80 MHz. In one important application, the PRL-414B is used for distributing a precision clock signal to a number of test stations in the lab.
The input resistance of the PRL-414B can be selected to be either 50 Ω or 1 kΩ by a switch. The 1 kΩ-input is desirable when interfacing with low power circuits. All I/Os are DC coupled and have BNC or SMA connectors.
The PRL-414B is housed in a 1.3 x 2.9 x 2.9-in. extruded aluminum enclosure and is supplied with a ±8.5 V/±1.8 A AC/DC Adapter. A maximum of four units can share a single AC/DC adapter using the PRL-730 voltage distribution module. If mounting is needed, a pair of the #35001420 mounting brackets can accommodate any two PRL modules of the same length.
A block diagram showing the equivalent input and output circuits of the PRL-414B is shown in Fig. 1.

Unless otherwise specified, dynamic measurements are made with all outputs terminated into 50 Ω.
(1) For sharing a single PRL-760C, ±8.5 V ±1.8 A AC/DC adapter, the total current should not exceed 1.8 A.
(2) fMAX should not exceed 120 MHz; otherwise, damage of the unit due to overheating may result.
(3) fMAX2 is measured by connecting a second PRL-414B at the end of the 100 ft. cable.
