Texas Instruments  CDCVF2509APW

The CDCVF2509A is a high-performance, low-skew, low-jitter, phase-lock loop (PLL) clock driver. It uses a PLL to precisely align, in both frequency and phase, the feedback (FBOUT) output to the clock (CLK) input signal. It is specifically designed for use with synchronous DRAMs. The CDCVF2509A operates at a 3.3-V VCC. It also provides integrated series-damping resistors that make it ideal for driving point-to-point loads.

One bank of five outputs and one bank of four outputs provide nine low-skew, low-jitter copies of CLK. Output signal duty cycles are adjusted to 50%, independent of the duty cycle at CLK. Each bank of outputs is enabled or disabled separately via the control (1G and 2G) inputs. When the G inputs are high, the outputs switch in phase and frequency with CLK; when the G inputs are low, the outputs are disabled to the logic-low state. The device automatically goes into power-down mode when no input signal (< 1 MHz) is applied to CLK; the outputs go into a low state.

Unlike many products containing PLLs, the CDCVF2509A does not require external RC networks. The loop filter for the PLL is included on-chip, minimizing component count, board space, and cost.

For application information, see application reports High Speed Distribution Design Techniques for CDC509/516/2509/2510/2516 (SLMA003) and Using CDC2509A/2510A PLL with Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) (SCAA039).

The CDCVF2509A is characterized for operation from 0°C to 85°C.

Because it is based on PLL circuitry, the CDCVF2509A requires a stabilization time to achieve phase lock of the feedback signal to the reference signal. This stabilization time is required following power up and application of a fixed-frequency, fixed-phase signal at CLK, and following any changes to the PLL reference or feedback signals. The PLL can be bypassed by strapping AVCC to ground to use as a simple clock buffer.
