Technical Data
3.3 V 1:12 LVCMOS PLL Clock
Generator
The MPC9773 is a 3.3 V compatible, 1:12 PLL based clock generator targeted
for high-performance low-skew clock distribution in mid-range to high-
performance networking, computing, and telecom applications. With output
frequencies up to 240 MHz and output skews less than 250 ps the device meets
the needs of the most demanding clock applications.

Functional Description
The MPC9773 utilizes PLL technology to frequency lock its outputs onto an input reference clock. Normal operation of the
MPC9773 requires the connection of the PLL feedback output QFB to feedback input FB_IN to close the PLL feedback path. The
reference clock frequency and the divider for the feedback path determine the VCO frequency. Both must be selected to match
the VCO frequency range. The MPC9773 features an extensive level of frequency programmability between the 12 outputs as
well as the output to input relationships, for instance 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 3:2, 4:1, 4:3, 5:1, 5:2, 5:3, 5:4, 5:6, 6:1, 8:1 and 8:3.
The QSYNC output will indicate when the coincident rising edges of the above relationships will occur. The selectability of the
feedback frequency is independent of the output frequencies. This allows for very flexible programming of the input reference
versus output frequency relationship. The output frequencies can be either odd or even multiples of the input reference. In addi-
tion, the output frequency can be less than the input frequency for applications where a frequency needs to be reduced by a non-
binary factor. The MPC9773 also supports the 180° phase shift of one of its output banks with respect to the other output banks.
The QSYNC outputs reflect the phase relationship between the QA and QC outputs and can be used for the generation of system
baseline timing signals.
The REF_SEL pin selects the LVPECL or the LVCMOS compatible inputs as the reference clock signal. Two alternative
LVCMOS compatible clock inputs are provided for clock redundancy support. The PLL_EN control selects the PLL bypass con-
figuration for test and diagnosis. In this configuration, the selected input reference clock is routed directly to the output dividers,
bypassing the PLL. The PLL bypass is fully static and the minimum clock frequency specification and all other PLL characteristics
do not apply.
The outputs can be individually disabled (stopped in logic low state) by programming the serial CLOCK_STOP interface of the
MPC9773. The MPC9773 has an internal power-on reset.
The MPC9773 is fully 3.3 V compatible and requires no external loop filter components. All inputs (except PCLK) accept
LVCMOS signals while the outputs provide LVCMOS compatible levels with the capability to drive terminated 50 Ω transmission
lines. For series terminated transmission lines, each of the MPC9773 outputs can drive one or two traces, giving the devices an
effective fanout of 1:24. The device is pin and function compatible to the MPC973 and is packaged in a 52-lead LQFP package.
