Clock Distribution
1010602Clock DistributionClocks are inherently critical pieces of a digital system. Reliable operation requires the distribution of electrically clean, well timed clocks to all synchronous components in the system. Clocking problems are one of the last bugs that an engineer wants to have in a system, because everything else is built on the assumption of nearly ideal clocks. This chapter concentrates on the means of distributing low-skew and low-jitter clocks in a system. Most systems require the design of a clock tree—a circuit that uses an oscillator of some type to create a clock and then distributes tha…
