LMK04616: SYNC input functionality

Part Number: LMK04616


I have a custom PCB using LMK04616 and I want to trigger SYSREF pulses on the rising edge of SYNC. I have the SYSREF registers set up correctly because I can trigger SYSREF pulses by setting the GLOBAL_SYSREF bit in GLBL_SYNC_SYSREF over SPI.

My problem is that when a rising edge appears at the SYNC pin, no SYSREF pulses are generated. As a debug step I have set STATUS0 to output a mirror of SYNC_INPUT, but the output remains low. I have also tried setting STATU0_INT_MUX to "Logic 1" and can confirm that the STATUS0 output then reads high.

I have also connected the SYNC input to a static 1V8 voltage, and STATUS0 remains low.

What am I doing wrong?

I have attached the registers exported from TICS.

Thanks very much,

  • Hi Josh,

    I see that you are writing 0x014260, which includes setting SYNC_ENB_INSTAGE=1. In the datasheet, the documentation claims that when this bit is set to 1, the SYNC input stage is disabled. Try setting 0x014240 instead.

  • Thanks Derek, that seems to have solved the issue!

    N.B. The reason I encountered this is because there seems to be a bug in TICS Pro (I am running v1.7.5.0). If I import my register set as uploaded above, then go to the "GPIO Pin: Sync" page, "SYNC_EN_INSTAGE" is correctly set to "Input 2-Level", despite the fact that SYNC_ENB_INSTAGE is set to 1 in register 0x142. if I regenerate the register output without changing anything SYNC_EN_INSTAGE remains set to 1.

    To get the correct register output I have to change "SYNC_EN_INSTAGE" to "Disabled", and then set it back to "Input 2-Level", only then do I get the correct values.
