FEATURES DESCRIPTION
n
Fixed-Frequency or Voltage-Controlled Operation
The LTC®6990 is a precision silicon oscillator with a pro- –
Fixed: Single Resistor Programs Frequency
grammable frequency range of 488Hz to 2MHz. It can be
with <1.5% Max Error
used as a fixed-frequency or voltage-controlled oscillator –
VCO: Two Resistors Set VCO Center
(VCO). The LTC6990 is part of the TimerBlox® family of
Frequency and Tuning Range
versatile silicon timing devices. n
Frequency Range: 488Hz to 2MHz
A single resistor, RSET, programs the LTC6990’s internal n 2.25V to 5.5V Single Supply Operation master oscillator frequency. The output frequency is deter- n 72µA Supply Current at 100kHz mined by this master oscillator and an internal frequency n 500µs Start-Up Time divider, NDIV, programmable to eight settings from 1 to 128. n VCO Bandwidth >300kHz at 1MHz n CMOS Logic Output Sources/Sinks 20mA 1MHz 50kΩ n f • , N 50% Duty Cycle Square Wave Output OUT = DIV = 1, 2, 4 …128 n NDIV RSET Output Enable (Selectable Low or Hi-Z When Disabled) n Optionally, a second resistor at the SET input provides –55°C to 125°C Operating Temperature Range n linear voltage control of the output frequency and can be Available in Low Profile (1mm) SOT-23 (ThinSOT™) used for frequency modulation. A narrow or wide VCO and 2mm × 3mm DFN Package tuning range can be configured by the appropriate selec- tion of the two resistors.
