The CY2308 has two banks of four outputs each that is controlled
by the select inputs as shown in the table
three-stated. The input clock is directly applied to the output for
chip and system testing purposes by the select inputs.
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 50
of current draw. The PLL shuts down in two additional cases as
shown in the table
Multiple CY2308 devices accept the same input clock and
distribute it in a system. In this case, the skew between the
outputs of two devices is less than 700 ps.
The CY2308 is available in five different configurations as shown
in the table
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 enables the user to obtain 2X and 1X frequencies
on each output bank. The exact configuration and output
frequencies depend on the output that drives the feedback pin.
The CY2308–3 enables 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 is 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 that locks to an input clock
presented on the REF pin. The PLL feedback is driven into the
FBK pin and obtained from one of the outputs. The
input-to-output skew is less than 350 ps and output-to-output
skew is less than 200 ps.
