The LTC6903/LTC6904 are low power self contained digital frequency sources providing a precision frequency from 1kHz to 68MHz, set through a serial port. The LTC6903/ LTC6904 require no external components other than a power supply bypass capacitor, and they operate over a single wide supply range of 2.7V to 5.5V.
The LTC6903/LTC6904 feature a proprietary feedback loop that linearizes the relationship between digital control setting and frequency, resulting in a very simple frequency setting equation:
where OCT is a 4-bit digital code and DAC is a 10-bit digital code.
The LTC6903 is controlled by a convenient SPI compatible serial interface. The LTC6904 uses an industry standard I2C compatible interface.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 726 is for the evaluation of ADIs programmable oscillator ICs, the LTC6903 and LTC6904. The DC726A-A features the LTC6903 IC in an 8-lead MSOP package. The LTC6903 is a 1kHz to 68MHz oscillator programmable thru a 3-wire digital interface compatible with the SPI serial protocol. The DC726A-B features the LTC6904 IC in an 8-lead MSOP package. The LTC6904 is a 1kHz to 68MHz oscillator programmable thru a 3-wire digital interface compatible with the I2C serial protocol (a Philips Corp. trademark).
