Minimum frequency for Coolrunner II CPLDs

Hi,

 

  What is the minimum frequency advisable for CRII CPLDs. Can I give a 20/50Hz clock signal as input. Also, can I use 555 timer/opamp based oscillators for this purpose?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Arvind Gupta

provided you meet the voltage requirements, you can use a 555 etc to drive the cpld.

Re: Minimum frequency for Coolrunner II CPLDs

Thanks for your response. Sometimes one requires a 10 ms / 20 ms etc delays. For such feature, one requires to count the number of clock pulses. If the system clock is in MHz range, the size of the counter increases. So if I put a slow clock as a second clock input, this reduces the size of the counter.

Re: Minimum frequency for Coolrunner II CPLDs

that makes sense, there is also the clock divider that can divide from 2 to 16 times that may help slow the clock down more if needed
