Problem Solving

  1. May 16, 2008 #1
    I don't know if this is getting posted in the right area, so please let me know otherwise.

    We have some hardware that takes a 50MHz clock signal, multiplies it by up to 32, and then divides it by up to 32, with the option to divide the final output by 4 again.
    The output must be between 8 and 210 MHz.

    say the user wants 33.33 MHz. We multiply by two and divide by three.
    But what if they want 32.768? Without my lookup table or a good formula, I'd have a hard time picking the right factors.

    Does that remind anyone of anything you've come across in classes or on your own?
