Title:
EFFICIENT RETIMER FOR CLOCK DIVIDERS

In a described apparatus, a preconditioner 204 has logic 206 mapped to operate with an integrated signal stage 212 of a retimer 202 for a clock divider in order to provide a smaller footprint with reduced power consumption and improved noise characteristics.
