Dedicated and programmable oscillator cells that generate an asynchronous on-chip clock signal with an appropriate external oscillator crystal. The design has been optimized for stability and minimum jitter and can be used over a frequency range of <1MHz to 50MHz. Options include the oscillator with power pads and full ESD protection integrated as a macro. The oscillator is designed to operate from the VDD power source of 1.2 volts. The design has been characterized to allow a variation of 4pF to 18pF on each pin.
