Effect of PPM error in Input on Output of CY22393

Last Updated: October 01, 2011

What will be error at the output with a 50 PPM error in frequency at the Input reference? Is it suitable for time keeping applications?


A 50 ppm error in the reference frequency produces a real time clocking error of 2 minutes per month and will not be suitable for time keeping applications. So the user must ensure that proper crystals are used with Cypress clock generators. For best results, a fundamental mode, parallel resonant crystal should be used.

For detailed explanation and analysis, please refer our Crystal Parameters Recommendation for Cypress Frequency Synthesizers whitepaper available on our website (please click on the link just provided). It describes crystal recommended for Cypress clock generators and concludes with an error budget analysis.

Following are the Crystal Specifications:

Fundamental mode.
AT cut.
6pF-30pF capacitance (18pF typical).
Parallel resonant.
drive level 500uW typical, max 2mW.
ESR < 25ohms.
Commercial or Industrial temperature depending on application.
