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.

With the small increase in overall power consumption, the variation in the time period of the clock pulse is controlled.
On the contrary, if the Syn_Clock is lagging behind, then the deduction gate closes, and the additional gate generates a control signal (Add) to the follow-up circuit to add a clock pulse before frequency division to weaken the lagging state.
latch's output signal is delayed and reaches next latch after the clock pulse. During the clock pulse width, the output signals of the first and second latches (Q1 and Q2) changes.
A continuous clock pulse through mode lock laser (MLL) enters through upper arm of first 3 dB coupler.
where [P.sub.in](t) denotes clock pulse power, [G.sub.1](t) and [G.sub.2](t) are the time-dependent gains experienced by the clock components in QD-SOA 1 and QD-SOA 2, respectively and [alpha][L.sub.ef] is the QD-SOA's linewidth enhancement factor.
after one cycle with the externally driving clock pulse. It is also known as "Period--I operation".
A clock pulse may arrive before the inductor current reaches the [I.sub.ref] (Fig.
Phase-continuous frequency switching is possible in direct digital synthesis (DDS) because of its ability to maintain an accumulated phase value during a frequency switch and after the next clock pulse begins generating the output signal at the new frequency from the phase value reached by the old frequency.
Razor II Flip flop uses a positive level sensitive latch and operation is enforced by flagging any transition on the input data in the positive clock pulse as a timing error.
Open LED detection can be started with one clock pulse during error detection mode while the output port is turned on.
The output will be the product of those two inputs for each clock pulse when there is no active reset signal.
There is also the auto-calibration method of improving the accuracy of the ADC where the user applies a clock pulse to a calibration pin either at power-on or during operation to improve overall accuracy.
