    PRoC 24MHz Clock Selection

      PRoC datasheet says that "24-MHz crystal or external clock input" at XTAL24I pin. I want to use external clock input. So :-

         

      1. What characterstics does the clock must have?

         

      2. In that case should XTAL24O pin be connected to ground?

         

      3. What necessary termination does this clock input needed at PRoC?

         

      I have read "AN95089" (www.cypress.com/). But didn't found answer of theses questions. Pls help.

          Looking at TRM there are no recommendations, suggest you file a CASE -

          3. What necessary termination does this clock input needed at PRoC?

             

           

             

          None, although you might consider 10 - 30 ohms in series to the clkin pin to

             

          dampen ringing. Normal practice on high speed clocks.
