Using an external crystal, the circuit is designed to operate in temperatures from -55 to 225 degrees Celsius for supply voltages between 3 and 5 volts to 50 MHz. The circuit also supports 32 kHz crystals for real-time clock generation.
The CHT-CG50LP IC has a built-in frequency divider selectable from 1 to 512, an enable/disable control signal and an external clock input. The output driver capability and crystal driver strength are programmable.
