Clocking Terminology 4 Synchronous Every chip gets same frequency AND phase Used in low-speed busses Mesochronous Same frequency, but unknown phase Requires phase recovery circuitry Can do with or without full CDR Used in fast memories, internal system interfaces, MAC/Packet interfaces Plesiochronous Almost the same frequency, resulting in slowly drifting phase Requires CDR Widely used in high-speed links Asynchronous No clocks at all Request/acknowledge handshake procedure Used in embeddded systems, Unix, Linux [ Poulton ]
