The oscillators (OSC) are self-contained ring oscillator or internal resistor/capacitor oscillator with selected output frequency. Oscillators do not contain any external component and are useful for applications requiring relaxed frequency tolerance. An enable/disable pin is provided to control these oscillators. When these oscillators are disabled, the output KOUT is held at logic LOW.
Certain oscillators can work at the trimmable output frequency or the selectable operating frequency by setting the control pins. Some oscillators may require external bandgap reference voltage to keep the output frequency stable against the temperature and power supply variations.
- Low-power supply current
- Provides enable/disable pin
- Trimmable/Selectable operating frequency (Optional)
