The IDT6V40277 is a small, versatile serially programmable clock source for Freescale systems. It can generate any frequency from 6 to 200 MHz and have a second configurable output. The outputs can be reprogrammed on the fly and will lock to a new frequency in 10 ms or less. Smooth transitions (in which the clock duty cycle remains near 50%) are guaranteed if the output divider is not changed. The device includes a PDTS pin which tri-states the output clocks  and powers down the entire chip. The IDT6V40277 features a default clock output at start-up. This product is intended for clock generation. It has low output jitter (variation in the output period), but input to output skew and jitter are not defined nor guaranteed.


  • Packaged in 16-pin DCG (150 mil wide SOIC) – Pb-free, RoHS compliant 
  • Highly accurate frequency generation 
  • Serially programmable: user determines the output frequency via a 3 wire interface 
  • Eliminates need for custom quartz 
  •  Input crystal frequency of 5 - 27 MHz
  • Output clock frequencies up to 200 MHz 
  • Power down tri-state mode
  • Very low jitter
  • Operating voltage of 3.3 V or 5 V
  • 25 mA drive capability at TTL levels
  • Industrial temperature operating range (-40°C to +85°C)
