The key blocks are three-stage divide-by-2/3 dual modulus prescaler
chain and 6-bit programmable down counter.
Lu, "A 16-GHz triple-modulus phase switching prescaler
and its application to a 15-GHz frequency synthesizer in 0.
Ultimate Flexibility: programmable dual-modulus prescaler
of 4/5 or 8/9; programmable output power level, dual output ports, integer-N or fractional-N operation
Attiny13 also contains an 8 bits timer with a prescaler
It has a wide range of peripheral functions, including high-speed DMA, multi-channel SIO, programmable timer, PLL, prescaler
along with additional functionality.
Timer Mode allows only the main clock, sub clock oscillations, time base timer or watch prescaler
Fabrication, RF Performance and Yield of a Combined Limiting Amplifier and Dual-modulus Prescaler
GaAs IC Chip," IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, Vol.
The analog block supports MOSFET gate driver output and multiple analog inputs from -12V to up to +12V with optional prescaler
The classic feedback oscillator lends itself to meeting these requirements, (1) while an MMIC-based implementation results in a low cost solution incorporating ancillary circuits such as buffer amplifiers, a prescaler
and a frequency doubler.
Internally, each CTU has a 32-bit counting engine with integrated prescaler
, programmable debouncing circuitry as well as well as input and output data FIFOs.
Figure 1 shows the frequency range for the intended applications of the new prescaler
An integrated optional LO prescaler
allows flexible VCO selection.
