Frequently Asked Question

Can I shift the threshold on clocks for single-ended inputs?

No. All clock inputs have a differential input. Both inputs have an internal DC bias or common mode voltage which is present on the input pins. Therefore the clock inputs are designed to be AC-coupled with a capacitor (0.1uf or 0.01uf). If a single-ended interface is desired, the unused input should be AC-coupled to ground.
