The ICS345 field programmable clock synthesizer generates up to nine high-quality, high-frequency clock outputs including multiple reference clocks from a low-frequency crystal or clock input. It is designed to replace crystals and crystal oscillators in most electronic systems. Using IDT’s VersaClock software to configure PLLs and outputs, the ICS345 contains a One-Time Programmable (OTP) ROM to allow field programmability. Programming features include eight selectable configuration registers, up to two sets of four low-skew outputs, and optional Spread Spectrum outputs. Using Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) techniques, the device runs from a standard fundamental mode, inexpensive crystal, or clock. It can replace multiple crystals and oscillators, saving board space and cost. The ICS345 is also available in factory programmed custom versions for high-volume applications.
