This application note addresses various system design issues to help ensure that Motorola?s low skew clock drivers are used effectively in a system environment.

Several varieties of clock drivers with 1 ns or less skew from output-to-output are available from Motorola. Microprocessor-based systems are now running at 33 MHz and beyond, and system clock distribution at these frequencies mandate the use of low skew clock drivers. Unfortunately, just plugging a high performance clock driver into a system does not guarantee trouble free operation. Only careful board layout and consideration of system noise issues can guarantee reliable clock distribution. This application note addresses these system design issues to help ensure that Motorola's low skew clock drivers are used effectively in a system environment.
