clock pulse

A signal used to synchronize the operations of an electronic system. Clock pulses are continuous, precisely spaced changes in voltage. See clock speed.

The input signal (Q1) varies during the clock pulse width due to this reason the second latch has an uncertain output signal(Q2).
A clock pulse may arrive before the inductor current reaches the [I.
Shorted LED detection can be started with two clock pulses during error detection mode while the output port is turned on.
These are computed in a single clock pulse taking advantage of inherent parallelism provided by an FPGA.
In case of first type, synchronization is achieved by applying clock pulses thus ensuring the gate to transmit input signal only that coincide with the arrival of clock pulses.
In a TIA, sampling is asynchronous as it is in a DSO, but the leading-edge 50% point of a pulse starts an interpolation timer that directly measures the time from the leading edge of the pulse to the next clock pulse.
