Will ο1 benefit this design?

Postby whomper » August 18th, 2018, 1:49 pm


I have a ADC DIY module that I'll be connecting to the optical in of my audio interface. This will probably mean master clock is generated by the ADC, so I'm thinking of the clock quality.
Enclosed is a screen capture of the clock and convertors circuitry for review.

Could o1 deliver a better clock than what's already there?

Maybe. You can probably feed a better clock into the MK2703B, but you cannot remove the MK2703B because it also handles PLL. That is, if you can find a high performance 27MHz oscillator for the ο1.

I think MK2703 PLL jitter kill o1 performance.
