Frequency shifting is accomplished within a single clock cycle and without glitches, providing a powerful tool for system configuration or power management through clock-speed control.
The LTC6930 has significant advantages in battery and portable applications. Drawing only 105uA at 32 kHz and requiring only a single 1.7V to 5.5V supply, the LTC6930 can operate from two unregulated NiCad batteries. Battery life is also extended, using the fast startup, where minimal power is lost during the clock power-up. Most oscillators exhibit a startup time greater than a millisecond. By contrast, the LTC6930 has a guaranteed startup time of less than 110usec.
The 0.09% frequency tolerance makes the LTC6930 suitable for many applications, including serial port communications and microprocessor clocks. The LTC6930 is fully specified for operation from -40°C to 125°C and offers rugged, reliable operation in environments unsuitable for crystal-based oscillators.
"The LTC6930 combines the unique features of Linear Technology’s silicon oscillators with next-generation frequency accuracy. Industrial and handheld devices will especially have an advantage with these clocks," says Doug LaPorte, design manager for Linear Technology.
