Hi all,

on the compal phones, a stand-alone oscillator (with control input) is
used, so I think you'll want to copy that. There are tiny single gate
multiplexers (e.g. 74LVC1G157) where NXP specifies a propagation delay
of 13ns max (125°C temperature, 1.65V supply), so it should certainly
work at 26Mhz (RITA's input wouldn't need the full voltage swing

Switching the clock will produce a glitch, but we should be able
to run the ARM core from the 32kHz clock crystal during that period,
I think (but will have to check) would we really want to toggle
between the two inputs? Do we want to autodetect a valid ext. refclock?

The micrel parts are really impressive, but much too fast for our
