    General Tips to Minimize Output to Output Skew of Clock Buffers

    content.librarian

      Tips to minimize output-output skew are as follows:

      1. Keep same length transmission lines at output.

      2. Allow only one frequency output simultaneously.

      3. Use same Vdd on all output buffers.

      4. Terminate outputs in same way; use sufficient bypass capacitors.

      5. For devices in parallel, feed inputs same ref clock in most symmetrical way possible.

      6. Route outputs in most symmetrical way possible.
