  Cross clock domain clocking for a system using two clock frequencies where one frequency is fractional multiple of the ...
This invention relates to circuits and methods for transferring signals across clock domains and particularly to input and output cells for a processor having a core that operates at a frequency that is a half-integer multiple of a bus clock frequency.
Bus signals are commonly synchronized with the rising edges of the bus clock signal, but when the processor clock frequency is a non-integer multiple of the bus clock frequency, the rising edge of the processor clock signal that is closest in time to a rising edge of the bus clock signal may be significantly offset.
A higher-frequency clock signal clocks the latch, and a control circuit enables rising-edge or falling-edge latching depending on whether a rising edge or a falling edge of the higher-frequency clock signal is closest in time to a required edge of a lower-frequency clock signal.

 Reference Clock Drivers
The local clock driver also supports an external synchronization source such as a high resolution counter disciplined by a GPS receiver, for example.
When more than one clock driver is supported, it is often the case that each shows small systematic offset differences relative to the rest.
To reduce the effects of jitter when switching from one driver to the another, it is useful to calibrate the drivers to a common ensemble offset.

 Mercury Atomic Clock Keeps Time with Record Accuracy
Better frequency standards can be used to improve probes of magnetic and gravitational fields for security and medical applications, and to measure whether “fundamental constants” used in scientific research might be varying over time—a question that has enormous implications for understanding the origins and ultimate fate of the universe.
An optical atomic clock has three components: an atom that switches from one energy level to another when probed by a laser at a well-defined optical frequency; the laser used to induce this transition; and a counter that faithfully records each oscillation per unit time (the ticks) of the probe laser.
The NIST mercury clock is unusual in part because of the method for stabilizing the ultraviolet laser used to probe the clock transition.

 DS3112 Clock Rates and Frequency Tolerances of the Transmit Clock - Maxim/Dallas
On average, the internal clock is the same frequency as the external clock since the level in the FIFO is used to generate the internal clock, keeping the FIFO close to half full.
The DS3112 samples the DS1(E1) input clocks using the DS3(E3) clock and detects the low to high transition that is used to enable the internal high-speed system clock for one clock period.
The divisors to the DS1 clock are 29 and 28, the divisors for E1 are 17 and 16, and the divisors for G.747 are 22 and 21.

Increases in clock frequency for the P4 produce a proportionately greater increase in performance than increases in clock frequency for the P3.
Intel claims that the P4 was designed to operate at higher clock frequencies and compares the P4 to the P3 at dissimilar clock frequencies.
When a processor has been designed to run at a higher clock frequency the cost of increasing the clock frequency is low compared the the increased cost of a new micro architecture.

 EEProductCenter.com :: Programmable clock, the universal timing solution?
Clock networks are traditionally designed using simple components such as fan-out buffers, clock generators, delay lines, zero delay buffers and frequency synthesizers.
Five output clock frequencies can be generated, you can direct any frequency to any output in the output routing matrix, and the universal fan-out buffer drives up to 20 outputs organized in 10 banks with different voltages.
The frequency of the PLL is the basis for generating the skew steps, which is a good reason for choosing the maximum PLL frequency of 640 MHz.

 Demos On Demand
The output skew of each clock net relative to the reference input can be controlled further in delay increments of 156 ps (lead or lag) to compensate for differences in circuit board clock network trace length.
Clock Network Layout is Simplified by Compensating for Timing Delays Due to Clock Trace Length Differences - Traditionally, clock network designs are constrained to maintain equal clock trace lengths to ensure timing integrity using serpentine patterns to accommodate the extra length clock traces.
However, the increased jitter in the clock is frequently not desirable.

 EETimes.com - System view of core clock frequency, voltage   (Site not responding. Last check: )
FV adjustment is based on semiconductor physics dictating that core voltage can be reduced if core clock frequency is reduced and that the power consumed by a microprocessor core is roughly proportional to the clock frequency at which it runs and the square of the voltage at which it is powered.
But since power equals energy divided by time and because software tasks may take longer to complete at lower clock frequencies, the total energy consumed at lower clock frequencies is not guaranteed to be appreciably different than at higher frequencies.
In this case, increasing the clock frequency has a negligible impact on performance-the data can't arrive any faster, no matter what the core clock frequency-so the idle time stays at 0 percent.

 Stereophile: The Jitter Game
Rather than ask readers to calculate the clock period from the oversampling rate and figure out the relative jitter levels for themselves, we have decided to normalize all jitter measurements to the very common 8x-oversampling clock found in virtually all current multi-bit CD players and D/A converters.
Note that the ratio between the jitter deviation and the clock frequency is identical for 3ps of jitter on a 384x clock and 144ps on an 8x-oversampling clock.
By multiplying 5.89ps by 48 (the ratio between a 384x clock and an 8x clock), we get 283ps, slightly lower than the 371ps measured at the 8x clock (the higher jitter at the 8x clock is probably a result of dividing the master 16.9MHz clock to obtain the 352.8kHz clock).
