"Over the last nine years, ARM has used a variety of high performance PLLs from True Circuits in test and development systems to showcase the performance and flexibility of our flagship processor products. We have now extended the list of processors to include the ARM Cortex-A family of applications processors, including the scalable Cortex-A9 hard core in TSMCıs 40nm G process. TCI's wide range, low-jitter PLLs enable us to demonstrate the speed and functionality of ARM cores and enable our silicon and software partners to optimize and accelerate their own development on advanced Cortex-A platforms."

The Verilog model is very close but not perfect.

  • In steady state, the Verilog model does not model any jitter that might be present in the real PLL.
  • During startup, the Verilog model will achieve lock much more quickly than the actual PLL....
