As I know, a clock controls all of the logic operations, but it also limits the speed of a computer because the gates have to wait for the clock to change from low to high or high to low depending on the component. If no clock was incorporated, the gates would change as fast as they could whenever given the command to, so why wouldn't that increase the computers speed and why are clocks used?
- Electronic – What components or circuitry exist that can provide extremely high speed, accurate clocks
- Electronic – How to delay a “not gate oscillator” to make it run at a desired frequency
- Electronic – How do computers deal with RAM latency
- Electronic – How are two atomic clocks synchronized
- Electronic – When do you say two clocks are asynchronous
- Electronic – Clock line of SDIO bus has worse rise/fall time than rest of bus
