Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word clock skew.


  1. Clock skew

    The operation of most digital circuit systems, such as computer systems, is synchronized by a "clock" that dictates the sequence and pacing of the devices on the circuit. Ideally, the input to each element has reached its final value before the next clock movement occurs so that the behaviour of the whole circuit can be predicted exactly. The maximum speed at which a system can run must account for the variance that occurs between the various elements of a circuit due to differences in physical composition, temperature, and path length. In a synchronous circuit clock skew is the difference in the arrival time between two sequentially-adjacent registers. Given two sequentially-adjacent registers Ri and Rj with clock arrival times at register clock pins as TCi and TCj respectively, then clock skew can be defined as : Clock skew can be positive or negative. If the clock signals are in complete synchronicity, then the clock skew observed at these registers is zero.
