CGS74LCT2524 1 to 4 Minimum Skew (300 ps) 3V Clock Driver General Description Features This minimum skew clock driver is a 3V option of the current CGS74CT2524 Minimum Skew Clock Driver and is designed for Clock Generation and Support (CGS) applications operating at low voltage, high frequencies. This device guarantees minimum output skew across the outputs of a given device. Skew parameters are also provided as a means to measure duty cycle requirements as those found in high speed clocking systems. This minimum skew clock driver with one input driving four outputs, is specifically designed for signal generation and clock distribution applications. n Ideal for low power/low noise high speed applications n Guaranteed: — 300 ps pin-to-pin skew (tOSHL and tOSLH) n Implemented on National’s FACT™ family process n 1 input to 4 outputs low skew clock distribution n Symmetric output current drive: 12 mA IOH/IOL n Industrial temperature of −40˚C to +85˚C n 8-pin SOIC package n Low dynamic power consumption above 20 MHz n Guaranteed 2 kV ESD protection Logic Symbol Connection Diagrams Pin Assignment SOIC (MO) DS011956-1 The output pins act as a single entity and will follow the state of the CLK when the clock distribution chip is selected.

The specifications apply to any outputs switching in the same direction either HIGH-to-LOW (tOSHL) or LOW-to-HIGH (tOSLH) or in opposite directions both HL and LH (tOST). Limits are characterized and guaranteed by design @ 66 MHz. Note 3: Pin transition skew is the absolute difference between HIGH-to-LOW and LOW-to-HIGH propagation delay, measured at a given output pin.
