Dual PLL, Asynchronous Clock Generator
The AD9576 provides a multiple output clock generator function comprising two dedicated phase-locked loop (PLL) cores with flexible frequency translation capability, optimized to serve as a robust source of asynchronous clocks for an entire system, providing extended operating life within frequency tolerance through monitoring of and automatic switchover between redundant crystal (XTAL) inputs with minimized switching, induced transients. The fractional-N PLL design is based on the Analog Devices, Inc., proven portfolio of high performance, low jitter frequency synthesizers to maximize network performance, whereas the integer-N PLL provides general-purpose clocks for use as CPU and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) reference clocks.
The AD9576 uses pin strapping to select among a multitude of power-on ready configurations for its 11 output clocks, which require only the connection of external pull-up or pull-down resistors to the appropriate pin program reader pins (PPRx). These pins provide control of the internal dividers for establishing the desired frequency translations, clock output functionality, and input reference functionality. These parameters can also be manually configured through a serial port interface (SPI).
The AD9576 is packaged in a 64-lead, 9 mm × 9 mm LFCSP, requiring only a single 2.5 V or 3.3 V supply. The operating temperature range is −40°C to +85°C.
Each OUTx output is differential and contains two pins: OUTx and OUTx. For simplicity, the term OUTx refers to the functional output block containing these two pins..
