Triple PLL Field Prog. Spread Spectrum Clock Synthesizer

The 290 field programmable spread spectrum clock synthesizer generates up to eight high-quality, high-frequency clock outputs including multiple reference clocks from a low-frequency crystal input. It is designed to replace crystals, crystal oscillators and stand alone spread spectrum devices in most electronic systems. Using IDT's VersaClockTM software to configure PLLs and outputs, the 290 contains a One-Time Programmable (OTP) ROM for field programmability. Programming features include input/output frequencies, spread spectrum amount, eight selectable configuration registers and up to two sets of four low-skew outputs. Using Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) techniques, the device runs from a standard fundamental mode, inexpensive crystal, or clock. It can replace multiple crystals and oscillators, saving board space and cost. The 290 is also available in factory programmed custom versions for high-volume applications.
