Z80 clock circuit

Posted on Feb 24, 2013

The circuit will operate reliably from below 1 MHz to above 400 MHz. With Vcc = 5 V the output of the second inverter essentially attains a full swing from 0 V to 5 V. Such large logic output levels and broad frequency range capabilities make this oscillator quite suitable for driving MOS components such as CPU, controller chip, peripheral devices, as well as other TTL products.

A damping resistor in series between the clock output of the oscillator and the input of the device being driven will remove the undesirable undershoot and ringing caused by the high speed CMOS part.
