Regarding the ADP5054.


We have to be able to Sync to an external clock with a range of 500kHz to 880kHz. Per page 16 of the datasheet.


Note that the internal switching frequency set by the RT pin must be programmed to a value that is close to the external clock value for successful synchronization; the suggested frequency difference is less than ±15% in typical applications.”


Depending on what “typical applications” means, it looks like I can not sync over such a large range.  I can not find any more in depth info on this.  What I have to do is power up without a Sync input and then dynamically change over to our pulse rate once the “mission” starts.  Can I use this part over this range?    Looks like I would need to set around 680 kHz and sync over a +/-30% range.
