split frequency

Discussion in 'VHDL' started by Martin Kokelmann, Feb 15, 2005.

  1. hello,

    i want to split a frequency.For example:

    The clock is given with 3.9152 MHz and as output there have to be 10KHz.

    How can I implement it?

    From 3.9152 MHz to 1 Hz is no problem.

    Is this a attempt?

    Firstly, are you sure you mean 3.9152MHz, and not 4.9152MHz?
    4.9152MHz is a common crystal frequency, used for baud rate
    generators.


    In general, you can divide any frequency down to any lower frequency,
    as long as the ratio of the two frequencies isn't an irrational
    number.
    So, yes, your problem is not difficult to solve.

    Performing such a frequency division will result in adding jitter to
    the signal. This jitter will have an amplitude that may be as large
    as 1 period of the input clock (255ns here).

    Can your application tolerate this much jitter?


    The coding is trivial. This web page:
    http://fractional-divider.tripod.com/
    has a script which will write the code for you.

    You can actualy divide by an approximation of an irrational number by
    using whats known as a fractional divider,there are two commonly used
    types one is a phase accumulator type the other is a dual modulus type.
    IA search on google should help or i have a copy of a perl script and
    test bench which makes design easy
    Jez(removethis)
    if you would like a copy.

    "approximation of irrational number" = rational number
