The ASM3P2508SP is a versatile Dual PLL based Clock
Synthesizer and Frequency Generator optimised and
designed specifically for three clock frequencies. The
PCI_CLK output from ASM3P2508SP reduces
electromagnetic interference (EMI) at the clock source,
allowing system wide reduction of EMI of all clock
dependent signals. ASM3P2508SP allows significant
system cost savings by reducing the number of circuit
board layers, ferrite beads & shielding that are
traditionally required to pass EMI regulations.
The ASM3P2508SP uses the most efficient and
optimized modulation profile approved by the FCC.
ASM3P2508SP modulates the output of a PLL in order to
“spread” the bandwidth of a synthesized clock, and more
importantly, decreases the peak amplitudes of its
harmonics. This results in a 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’ (SSCG).
In addition to the SSCG output, ASM3P2508SP
generates two high accuracy clock signals -
T1 Clock @ 25.00MHz with +/- 25ppm stability, and a
20MHz Sys_ REF_CLK.
The ASM3P2508SP is targeted towards Consumer,
Industrial, Data and Telecommunications applications.
