Handling Multiple Clocks

  • Mohit Arora


Designs involving single clocks are easy and simple to implement. But in actual practice, there are few practical designs that function on just one clock. This chapter deals with multiple clock designs, problems faced therein and solutions in order to get a robust design that works on multiple clocks.
