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.

Like the MC100LVEP111, the NBSG111's synchronous enable feature is used to avoid a runt clock pulse when the device is enabled or disabled -- a common occurrence with an asynchronous control.
Two selectable signals are chosen through a control pin to the MUX; the operation of the output signals can be enabled or disabled, and synchronized with the input signal to eliminate the potential for a runt clock pulse.
The chip also has a 12-channel 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC), 4-channel 8-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC), clock pulse generator (CPG) with phase-locked-loop (PPL), and a 3-channel serial communication interface (SCI) with IrDA and serial bus capabilities.
They include system timers, a watchdog timer, memory management unit (MMU), clock pulse generator with phase locked loop (PLL) and power-down modes, interrupt controller (INTC), direct memory access controller (DMAC) and bus-state controller (BSC).
