TTL or CMOS compatible outputs.
Available in 8-pin SOIC and TSSOP Packages.
The ASM3P2108A is a versatile spread spectrum
frequency modulator designed specifically for input clock
frequencies from 25MHz to 45MHz. The ASM3P2108A
can generate an EMI reduced clock from crystal, ceramic
resonator, or system clock.
The ASM3P2108A reduces electromagnetic interference
(EMI) at the clock source, allowing system wide reduction
of EMI of down stream clock and data dependent
signals. The ASM3P2108A 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 ASM3P2108A uses the most efficient and optimized
modulation profile approved by the FCC and is
implemented in a proprietary all digital method.
The ASM3P2108A 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 ASM3P2108A is targeted towards EMI management
for high speed digital applications such as PC peripheral
devices, consumer electronics and embedded controller
