osmo-clock-conv

The osmo-clock-conv is a small board for low-jitter conversion of a sine clock into a square clock, based around the LTC6957-4.

indicator vor V+ supply voltage rail

LED2 - top

indicator for VDD voltage rail

Jumpers

JP6 - VDD selection

There are three potential sources for the VDD voltage:

  • VDD uses V+ rail (output of internal LDO): JP6 on pins 2-3
  • external VDD source: voltage can be supplied on pin 3
  • external LDO: can be placed between JP6 pin 1 (V_IN supply) and 3 (regulated VDD output)

JP7 - single-ended vs. differential input

If JP7 is closed, it disables the inverting clock input (IN-) of the LTC6957. X6/X2 can no longer be used.

Connectors

K1 - External 5V DC input

This is the power input for an external 5V DC power supply.

Use only either K1 or JP5!

JP5 - Internal 5V DC input

In case osmo-clock-conv is part of a larger assembly/device, you may already have a 5V DC supply internally.

Use only either K1 or JP5!

X5/X1

  • if you use differential input (JP7 open): non-inverting clock input
  • if you use single-ended input (JP7 closed): clock input

X6/X2

  • if you use differential input (JP7 open): inverting clock input
  • if you use single-ended input (JP7 closed): unused

X7/X3

Clock output "OUT1", AC-coupled

X8/X4

Clock output "OUT2", AC-coupled

Schematics

PCB layout

The PCB design is a dual-layer board in 100x50mm size. All connectors are exposed on one edge.

Availability

This project is currently in the design verification stage. Once the verification has completed, it is expected that osmo-clock-conv boards will be made available via the sysmocom webshop.
