A key element (one is tempted to say the heart) of most digital systems is the clock. Its period determines the rate at which data are processed, and so should be made as small as possible, consistent with reliable operation.
timing, Clocking, clock pulses, delays, digital systems, edge-triggered flip-flops, edge tolerances, latches, one-phase clocking, skew, synchronous circuits
