QUICK START GUIDE FOR DEMONSTRATION CIRCUIT 1075
CLOCK DIVIDER
Clock Divider/Sine Wave 50 Ohm to CMOS Level Converter
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1075 is a clock divider for
use with high speed ADCs. Each assembly includes
a clock divider followed by a retiming stage used to
produce sharp clock edges.
Functionally, the DC1075 receives a high frequency
sine wave which is attenuated and routed into the
clock divider. The output of the clock divider is
then routed to a D flip flop retiming stage. This D
flip flop is clocked by the original input. This is
critical to ensure signal integrity. The output of this
retiming stage is a CMOS signal suitable to be a
clock source for high speed ADCs.
This circuit also is a model for designs involving
FPGAs which serve as clock dividers. Whenever
this is done, a D flip flop retiming stage is required
to ensure a low jitter clock signal.
Design files for this circuit board are available.
