"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."

A TCI deskew PLL, which provides phase-aligned divide by 1, 2, and 4 clock outputs, can facilitate generating the system clock signals, data strobes, and internal double frequency clocks used to clock the output data. Spread-spectrum PLLs can also be used to generate the system clock to lower EMI emissions.
