The Implementation of Bit Synchronous Clock Extraction System Based on FPGA
The most common circuit used for digital frequency division consists of a series of bistable flip-flops with synchronous clock inputs.
One samples the input data and the other a user-supplied synchronous clock. Typically, to achieve the lowest possible uncertainty, this clock would be generated by a highly stable, low-noise reference oscillator such as an RF synthesizer.
Data is transferred with a source synchronous clock and sampled on both clock edges.
