With regards to BF592 EXTCLK pin

Hi ,


Data sheet states

[All pins are three-stated during and immediately after reset,with the exception of EXTCLK, which toggles at the system clock rate.

Adding a parallel termination to EXTCLK may prove useful in further enhancing signal integrity. Be sure to verify overshoot/ undershoot and signal integrity specifications on actual hardware.]


But on checking the manual VR_CTL registers Reset Values is 0x 3000 which is EXTCLK_OE is cleared and manual also state

[When EXTCLK_OE is cleared, the EXTCLK pin is three-stated]


Which is correct is it Three stated or is it Toggling at SYSTEM CLOCK RATE(SCLK ) on and after RESET .


And what is correct termination if the function is not used  as Data sheet and manual is confusing .


Thanking you
