3. Power Saving Mode (Intermittent Mode Control Circuit)
Power saving mode
The intermittent mode control circuit reduces the PLL power consumption.
By setting the PS pin low, the device enters into the power saving mode, reducing the current consumption. See
the Electrical Characteristics chart for the specific value.
The phase detector output, Do, becomes high impedance.
For the dual PLL, the lock detector, LD, is as shown in the LD Output Logic table.
Setting the PS pin high, releases the power saving mode, and the device works normally.
The intermittent mode control circuit also ensures a smooth startup when the device returns to normal operation.
When the PLL is returned to normal operation, the phase comparator output signal is unpredictable. This is
because of the unknown relationship between the comparison frequency (fp) and the reference frequency (fr)
which can cause a major change in the comparaor output, resulting in a VCO frequency jump and an increase
in lockup time.
To prevent a major VCO frequency jump, the intermittent mode control circuit limits the magnitude of the error
signal from the phase detector when it returns to normal operation.
Notes : When power (VCC) is first applied, the device must be in standby mode.
PS pin must be set "L" at Power-ON.
