The ASNT_502 system on board functions as a multi-purpose divider for test, microwave, and communication applications. The selectable divide output can be operated single-ended or differentially. A secondary fixed divide-by-8 output can also be used single-ended or differentially. The high-speed clock input is AC coupled with a K-type connector. The clock outputs are AC coupled with SMA connectors. Power is supplied through a two pin MOLEX connector P/N: 39-28-1023. The ASNT_502 divider can be used as a prescaler to extend the useful frequency range for triggering. The second fixed divide-by-8 output can be used to synchronize other devices. The divider can also be used as a prescaler for PLL’s or frequency counters.
