What is virtual clock and why is it required?
For paths going through a primary input port, the tool needs to know the frequency of the clock driving the signal in order to create a proper timing path. Similarly for output ports, the tool needs to know the frequency of the flop capturing the signal. This is why we define a virtual clock.
What is the use of clock pulse?
A signal used to synchronize the operations of an electronic system. Clock pulses are continuous, precisely spaced changes in voltage. See clock speed.
Why do we use clock in flip-flops?
Clocking causes the flip-flop to either change or retain its output signal based upon the values of the input signals at the transition. Some flip-flops change output on the rising edge of the clock, others on the falling edge. Latches are designed to be transparent.
Why do we need clock?
Many digital systems consist of many blocks put together, so, We need a clock to keep them both running at speeds that both can handle. Asychronous systems use hand shake signals to do the same task. After device-1 has completed, it sends a signal to device-2 that it has completed its work.
What is analog clock?
a clock that represents time by the position of hands on a dial.
What is Set_output_delay?
The set_output_delay command sets output path delays on output ports. relative to a clock edge. Output ports are assumed to have no output. delay unless specified.
What is meant by virtual clock?
– A virtual clock can be defined as a clock without any source or in other words a virtual clock is a clock that has been defined, but has not been associated with any pin/port. – It does not physically exist in the design but it does exist in the memory.
Why clock is used in microcontroller?
In order to control the flow of data between the different building blocks of the microcontrller one needs a clock. So, the clock is needed to manage the operation of the microcontroller. The clock is needed also for the streaming the data across the communication ports.
What is the difference between clock and pulse?
Your microcontroller may have a 16 MHz clock, then the clock generates 16 million pulses per second. So a clock signal consists of an indefinite series of pulses. A pulse is sudden change in signal level, in a digital signal from low to high or vice versa, and after some time a return to the original level.
