Title: Method and apparatus for source synchronous transfers at frequencies including an odd fraction of a core frequency

Abstract: A method and apparatus for source synchronous transfers at frequencies including an odd fraction of a core frequency. A disclosed apparatus includes a signal driver circuit and a strobe signal driver circuit. The signal driver circuit is coupled to generate a cycle for a first signal at a first frequency from a core signal from a core operating at a core clock frequency that is an odd fractional multiple of the first frequency. The strobe signal driver circuit is coupled to generate a strobe signal at an intermediate point of the cycle to allow latching of the first signal triggered by the strobe signal.
