QAD9515: How will the power consumption vary with divide ratio? If I'm using a
divider of 10, what is the delta power consumption?
AThe power consumption doesn’t vary significantly with the divide ratio. The
only exception is going from the divider bypassed, and the divider enabled.
Once the divider is enabled, there isn’t much difference (if any) between a /17
and a /23, for example. Also, the LVPECL power consumption doesn’t vary much
with frequency. However, the power consumption for the LVDS/CMOS goes up as the
frequency goes up. Enabling the fine delay will also increase the power
