The ASM3P2184A is a versatile spread spectrum
frequency modulators designed specifically for a wide
range of input clock frequencies from 6MHz to 70MHz.
(Refer Input Frequency and Modulation Rate Table). The
ASM3P2184A can generate an EMI reduced clock from
an OSC or a system generated clock. The
ASM3P2184A offers a Center Spread clock with 2
percentage deviations; ±0.625% and ±1.675%.
The ASM3P2184A reduces electromagnetic interference
(EMI) at the clock source, allowing system wide reduction
of EMI of down stream clock and data dependent
signals. The ASM3P2184A allows significant system cost
savings by reducing the number of circuit board layers
ferrite beads, shielding and other passive components
that are traditionally required to pass EMI regulations.
The ASM3P2184A uses the most efficient and optimized
modulation profile approved by the FCC and is
implemented in a proprietary all digital method.
The ASM3P2184A modulates the output of a single PLL
in order to “spread” the bandwidth of a synthesized clock,
and more importantly, decreases the peak amplitudes of
its harmonics. This results in significantly lower system
EMI compared to the typical narrow band signal produced
by oscillators and most frequency generators. Lowering
EMI by increasing a signal’s bandwidth is called ‘spread
spectrum clock generation’.
The ASM3P2184A is targeted towards EMI management
for memory and LVDS interfaces in mobile graphic
chipsets and high-speed digital applications such as PC
peripheral devices, consumer electronics, and embedded
