4x PLL

The oscillator module contains a 4x Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) circuit that can be used with the external clock sources to provide a system clock source. The input frequency for the PLL must fall within a specified range. See the “PLL Specifications” table found in the “Electrical Specifications” chapter for more information.

The PLL can be enabled for use through one of two methods:

  1. 1.Program the RSTOSC Configuration bits to select the “EXTOSC with 4x PLL” option.
  2. 2.Write the NOSC bits to select the ”EXTOSC with 4x PLL” option.
