"DDR3 memory characterization requires acquisition of a system clock and up to 64 data channels," he said, adding that 1,600-MT/s systems require at least 6.7 GHz of bandwidth to measure accurately.
To compare the novel design with existing designs, we have set 1 V power supply voltage and a system clock frequency of 500 MHz, and the proposed design was implemented with 22 nm CMOS technology and simulated through the SPICE simulator.
WhatsApp bases the seven minute countdown on the system clock of the device that sent the message, so users can adjust the clock on their device to revert back to that seven minute time frame and remove a message after more than seven minutes have passed.
Since accuracy is critical to analyzing traffic at line rate, Spirent's 100G module has a system clock with a resolution of 2.5 ns, more than twice as fast as required to support Ethernet at 100 Gbps.
Improving integration in larger systems, the device can synchronise to an external clock and voltage reference, or provide the internal system clock and reference to other devices for synchronisation.
It is typically on a clock, weather condition it is a mobile phone clock, a computer system clock, a watch, a wall surface clock or even invoices.
The second input is the main system clock. The last two inputs are the DOIT and the TRIGLEPULSE which are used as enable and reset signals for our implemented design.
In addition to the Kintex UltraScale XCKU040 device, the development board features 1GB DDR4 SDRAM, two SFP+ interfaces, dual QSPI Flash memories, HDMI interface, LVDS touch panel interface, two 10/100/1000 Ethernet PHYs, a USB-UART port and system clock. The onboard 10/100/1000 Ethernet and SFP+ ports add networking capabilities, while the FMC HPC expansion slot along with PMOD headers offer versatile interface options.
BUC module starts reading data from BRAM1 at four times higher clock speed than rest of the system clock CLK in column scan order.
Today's conventional microprocessors and graphics processors are capable of performing billions of mathematical operations a second, yet the new chip system clock makes its calculations barely a thousand times a second.
It has a voltage range of 3 volt (V) to 5.5 V and draws only 190 microamps ([micro]A) while in standby mode with the system clock running (76 [micro]A with no clock).
