Functional Description

The CY27410 is a standard-performance programmable clock generator with four independent fractional PLLs, which generates any frequency with a zero-ppm synthesis error. Each PLL is followed by a set of four independent dividers to generate four different frequencies from a single PLL. All four dividers are synchronized to generate phase-aligned clock outputs with minimal skew. The PLLs also support the spread-spectrum feature to reduce EMI. All four PLLs are equipped with VCXO functionality to achieve ppm granularity of output frequency.
