timing signal

timing signal

[′tīm·iŋ ‚sig·nəl]
(computer science)
A pulse generated by the clock of a digital computer to provide synchronization of its activities.
(electronics)
Any signal recorded simultaneously with data on magnetic tape for use in identifying the exact time of each recorded event.

The energy detector produced an energy signal that was analyzed by a charge-integrating analog-to-digital converter (QDC) and a timing signal used to produce an event trigger.
The accuracy of the neutron spin alignment with [k.sub.n] X I is limited by the timing signal of the neutron pulse.
Both modules have two counter/timers and software-controlled onboard timing signal routing.
With both design flexibility and HSTL inputs, the MC100EP8O9 can drive HSTL signals throughout the circuit back-plane or convert the positive emitter-coupled logic (PEG L) based timing signal from a master phase lock loop (PLL) clock generator to an HSTL-based configuration for distributing nine separate clock signals.
The N79 Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA), which will be used on fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, prevents deliberate jamming and unintentional interference of timing signals when integrated with anti-jam GPS systems such as the Raytheon Navshield system.
Square waves are standard for testing amplifier distortion and timing signals for TVs and computers.
ITT Exelis said that the rugged N79 Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) prevents deliberate jamming and unintentional interference of timing signals when integrated with anti-jam GPS systems including the Raytheon Navshield and Advanced Digital Antenna Production systems.
JetSpeed II distributes timing signals and synchronously passes data to onboard memory.
On about one-third of the trials, the researchers switched the timing signals for upcoming pain amounts so that volunteers received heat pulses that were either of higher or lower intensity than they expected.
The PFIM is designed for firing multiple solenoid-based injectors with precise current and timing signals. In addition, the PFIM will be able to retrofit older testing equipment, as well as conform to new equipment models, the company said.
