AN95089 - PSoC® 4/PRoC™ BLE Crystal Oscillator Selection and Tuning Techniques
This application note helps you select the ECO crystal and the WCO crystal for PSoC 4/PRoC BLE devices and tune them for optimum performance.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a timing-sensitive technology in which an inaccurate ECO clock can degrade the physical layer RF performance; similarly, an inaccurate WCO clock can lead to increased power consumption in a peripheral.
The on-chip ECO circuit with an external crystal is used to synthesize a 24-MHz clock to run the BLE subsystem. The clock sets the protocol timing for link-layer operations and derives the carrier frequency for physical-layer RF circuits.
An external WCO crystal is used to derive the 32.768-kHz clock that maintains link-layer timing synchronization when the BLE subsystem is in a low-power mode.
