The Si5351 from Silicon Labs is a Low-cost PLL IC just incase you are designing on the board level.

Hi Klaus,

I don't seem to understand how my solution would give 2% duty cycle. Can you explain please?

(4999 - 4095)/5000 = 0.18 = 18% duty cycle. That is 0.18*1/10000Hz...

Hi,

You need an n-bit counter (i.e. 2^n - 1 is greater than or equal to the number of counts that you want minus 1). In your case, since 2^12 - 1 = 4095 (which is not enough to count up to 5000 -...

### Closed: Re: Power consumption calculations including efficiency

No, Pin_tot_converters = Pout_tot_converters/efficiency = 62W/0.9 = 68.89W

No, you've calculated the total input power to the three converters as Pin_tot_converters already.

No way. This...

It seems like your DC gain is about 91dB but we cannot be so sure because your plot is shown from 100kHz. Plot again from 1Hz or 10Hz or even 100Hz.

You have mentioned too many frequencies: 10MHz, 30MHz, and the "input" waveform of your last post shows a frequency that is about double that of the 30-MHz clock.

10MHz is too high for a 555. 3-MHz is specified for the cmos version.

BTW, when you say 10MHz, is it the clock frequency or the data. You didn't say which and you didn't mention the other.

What are your frequencies? List them so we know. Even the 555 has limitation in frequency.

Is that the original clock or a derived clock?
