Abstract

Generating clock signals with periods approaching 20 ns requires device with minimal propagation delay. Schottky TTL (transistor-transistor logic) LSI (large-scale integration) parts, such as counters and dividers, have delays which prevent use at this high speed. Clock skew becomes a problem when multiple signals are decoded from the same signal source since delays vary through different signal paths.
