The deep M/N divider ratio allows the generation of zero-ppm audio/video, networking (WLAN, Bluetooth, Ethernet, GPS), or interface (USB, IEEE1394, memory stick) clocks from a 27-MHz reference input frequency, for example.
All PLLs support SSC (spread-spectrum clocking). SSC can be center-spread or down-spread clocking, which is a common technique to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Based on the PLL frequency and the divider settings, the internal loop filter components are automatically adjusted to achieve high stability and optimized jitter transfer characteristic of each PLL.
The device supports nonvolatile EEPROM programming for easy customization of the device in the application. It is preset to a factory default configuration and can be reprogrammed to a different application configuration before it goes onto the PCB or reprogrammed by in-system programming. All device settings are programmable through the SDA/SCL bus, a 2-wire serial interface.
Three, free programmable control inputs, S0, S1, and S2, can be used to select different frequencies, or change the SSC setting for lowering EMI, or other control features like outputs disable to low, outputs in high-impedance state, power down, PLL bypass, and so forth.
The CDCx925 operates in a 1.8-V environment and in a temperature range of –40°C to 85°C.
