clock pulses

[′kläk ‚pəl·səz]
(computer science)
Electronic pulses which are emitted periodically, usually by a crystal device, to synchronize the operation of circuits in a computer. Also known as clock signals.

Adding measurement statistics, such as minimum and maximum frequency, provides confidence that the clock pulses are continuous.
[10] presented a robust LM_C dual edge flip-flop by using C-elements, where the direct clock pulses were used to latch the data for the reduction of clock dynamic power consumption without any additional pulse generator circuit.
16 clock pulses are required to completely calculate the partial products S1 to S18 owing to the propagation of carry (generated from S2 to S18).
The proposed TGPG consists of transmission gate controlled by two delayed clock pulses De_clk, De_clThinv, and its positive glitch output connected to drain of [M.sub.1] and [M.sub.2].
The typical waveforms of inductor current i, CLOCK pulses and switching signal are shown in the Fig.
The other technique is that, the timer can be used as counter by applying clock pulses externally and comparing the count in counter with 'A' register, but it requires external clock source, since 8051 doesn't have any clock out pin.
To switch between error-detection modes, clock pulses are needed.
If the encoder is configured to a total resolution of less than 8,192 because of scaling, the position value is transmitted automatically with 13 clock pulses. This also saves transmission time and can improve the dynamic performance of the machine.
They are read from each buffer by bursts of clock pulses generated by a master clock operating at the rate of the TDAS-multiplexed transmission link, namely [N.sub.F]/[T.sub.F].
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.
So, it's not surprising that a great deal of attention is given to generating and distributing clock pulses.
