3.3V Zero Delay Buffer
• Zero input-output propagation delay, adjustable by
capacitive load on FBK input
• Multiple configurations, see “Available CY2308
• Multiple low-skew outputs
— Output-output skew less than 200 ps
— Device-device skew less than 700 ps
— Two banks of four outputs, three-stateable by two
• 10-MHz to 133-MHz operating range
• Low jitter, less than 200 ps cycle-cycle (–1, –1H, –4, –5H)
• Space-saving 16-pin 150-mil SOIC package or 16-pin
• 3.3V operation
• Industrial Temperature available
The CY2308 has two banks of four outputs each, which can
be controlled by the Select inputs as shown in the table “Select
Input Decoding.” If all output clocks are not required, Bank B
can be three-stated. The select inputs also allow the input
clock to be directly applied to the output for chip and system
The CY2308 PLL enters a power-down state when there are
no rising edges on the REF input. In this mode, all outputs are
three-stated and the PLL is turned off, resulting in less than
of current draw. The PLL shuts down in two additional
cases as shown in the “Select Input Decoding” table.
Multiple CY2308 devices can accept the same input clock and
distribute it in a system. In this case, the skew between the
outputs of two devices is guaranteed to be less than 700 ps.
The CY2308 is available in five different configurations, as
shown in the “Available CY2308 Configurations” table on page
2. The CY2308–1 is the base part, where the output
frequencies equal the reference if there is no counter in the
feedback path. The CY2308–1H is the high-drive version of
the –1, and rise and fall times on this device are much faster.
The CY2308–2 allows the user to obtain 2X and 1X
frequencies on each output bank. The exact configuration and
output frequencies depends on which output drives the
feedback pin. The CY2308–3 allows the user to obtain 4X and
2X frequencies on the outputs.
The CY2308–4 enables the user to obtain 2X clocks on all
outputs. Thus, the part is extremely versatile, and can be used
in a variety of applications.
The CY2308–5H is a high-drive version with REF/2 on both
The CY2308 is a 3.3V Zero Delay Buffer designed to distribute
high-speed clocks in PC, workstation, datacom, telecom, and
other high-performance applications.
The part has an on-chip PLL which locks to an input clock
presented on the REF pin. The PLL feedback is required to be
driven into the FBK pin, and can be obtained from one of the
outputs. The input-to-output skew is guaranteed to be less
than 350 ps, and output-to-output skew is guaranteed to be
less than 200 ps.
