Abstract

A SCHEDULER USED TO SYNCHRONIZE SYSTEMISERIAL CLOCK I.

These two clocks, usually named SERIAL and SYSTEM clocks, are a synchronous. Special devices have to be used to insured a proper flow for the data between theses two domains. There are often names "synchronize device". The disclosed devices are part of these. II. DESCRIPTION
