Abstract

This article proposes adding a clock-chopper inhibit (CCI) function to a standard redundant clock chopper. When CCI is low, the standard chopper will operate normally, when CCI is high, clock chopping will be inhibited and the output of the clock chopper will follow that of the input clock signal (CLK) directly.
