How to generate a 5 MHz clock with 50 percent duty cycle? I have an application that requires a continuous clock signal to operate. 555 timer is an easy option but it generates only up to 1 MHz frequency. I know that there are various crystal oscillators available but not sure how to connect.
The application is for a printer. The data is loaded into the printer ICs clock signal is high and with a constant frequency of 5MHz.
I need to design a clock generator to load this data into the ICs. The interface connector has 2 input pins, one for data and the other is for clock signal.
