The ASM3P28XX devices are versatile spread spectrum
frequency modulators designed specifically for a wide
range of input clock frequencies from 10MHz to 40MHz.
(Refer Input/Output Frequency Range Selection Table).
The ASM3P28XX can generate an EMI reduced clock
from crystal, ceramic resonator, or system clock. The
ASM3P28XX-A and the ASM3P28XX-B offer various
combinations of spread options and percentage
deviations (Refer Output Frequency Deviation and
Spread Option Selection Table). These combinations
include Down and Center Spread and percentage
deviation range from ±0.625% to –3.50%.
The ASM3P28XX reduces electromagnetic interference
(EMI) at the clock source, allowing system wide reduction
of EMI of down stream clock and data dependent
signals. The ASM3P28XX 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 ASM3P28XX 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 ASM3P28XX uses the most efficient and optimized
modulation profile approved by the FCC and is
implemented in a proprietary all-digital method.
The ASM3P28XX 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
