A pattern near the heel of a sock or stocking
An electrical signal that synchronizes timing among digital circuits of semiconductor chips or modules
{n} an instrument to show time, beetle, large insect, ornament, part of a stocking
A timing device usually providing a continuous series of timing pulses
a timepiece that shows the time of day measure the time or duration of an event or action or the person who performs an action in a certain period of time; "he clocked the runners
A timing reference that provides the basis for synchronization of different elements in a single device, or between multiple devices
An oscillator-generated signal that provides a timing reference for a transmission link used to control the timing functions such as sampling interval, signaling rate, & duration of signal elements; an "enclosed" digital network typically has only one master clock
(a) A device that can measure the passage of equal intervals of time In the future quasars may be used as the most accurate clocks yet (b) An unnecessary human creation to accompany the invention of the deadline
A figure or figured work on the ankle or side of a stocking
A digital pulse generator that controls the timing of a computer and, to a great extent, determines the speed (number of instructions per second) capability of the computer Generally, it is located in the CPU
An electronic circuit utilizing a quartz crystal that generates evenly spaced pulses at speeds of millions of cycles per second The pulses are used to synchro-nize the flow of information through the computer's internal communication channels Some computers also contain a circuit that tracks hours, minutes, and seconds
A device in a computer that emits timing pulses used to synchronize the operation of the computer
A component of the CPU that produces pulses at a fixed rate to synchronize all computer operations
An oscillator producing timing pulses to synchronize various elements of a system In switching mode power supplies, a clock is used to produce the power pulses that are modulated to control power transfer In digital interfaces that communicate on a bus (such as the IEEE-488) a clock is used to synchronize the data transfer and commands
The striking of a clock
If you are doing something against the clock, you are doing it in a great hurry, because there is very little time. The emergency services were working against the clock as the tide began to rise It's now become a race against the clock
a timepiece that shows the time of day
A repetitive or cyclic timing signal to coordinate state changes in a digital system A clock can coordinate the movement of data and results through various stages of processing Although a clock signal is digital, the source of the repetitive signal is almost always an analog circuit In an analog system we might produce a known delay by slowly charging a capacitor and measuring the voltage across it continuously until the voltage reaches the desired level A big problem with this is that the circuit becomes increasingly susceptible to noise at the end of the interval In a digital system we create a delay by simply counting clock cycles Since all external operations are digital, noise effects are virtually eliminated, and we can easily create accurate delays which are as long as the count in any counter we can build

A clock tracks the passage of time and reports the current time instant, like a real clock However, most clocks used in ESMF components have a key difference to a real clock Clocks in an ESMF component are generally stepped forward by the component, as an explicitly coded time step within the overall component
Associated with the CPU The clock generates a frequency that times the system's operations A computer that operates at 200 MHz, has a CPU clock operating at 200 million cycles per second Each instruction requires one or more clock cycles Thus the faster the clock speed, the faster the computer processes data The clock that puts the time and date on the screen is a separate clock-calendar chip
An oscillator-generated signal that provides a timing reference for a transmission link; used to control the timing of functions such as sampling interval, signaling rate, and duration of signal elements

In some ways we wish we could turn the clock back We cannot put back the clock. An embroidered or woven decoration on the side of a stocking or sock. Machine or electronic device that measures and records time. Both simple and elaborate clocks, as well as sundials, candle clocks, and sandglasses, were used for measuring time in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The first mechanical clocks were weight-driven and perhaps were invented for use in monasteries, where the disciplined life required a strict rendering of time. The first European public clock that struck the hours was erected in Milan in 1335, and the oldest surviving clocks are in England (1386) and France (1389). The first domestic clocks appeared late in the 14th century. About 1500 Peter Henlein, a German locksmith, began to make the first portable timepieces, small clocks driven by a spring. Christiaan Huygens invented pendulum clocks in 1656. Big Ben, the great clock at Westminster in London, was installed in 1859 and is the standard for all accurate tower pendulum clocks. The most accurate mechanical timekeepers (within a few thousandths of a second per day) are clocks with short pendulums (about 39 in. [or 990 mm]). In 1929 the vibration of a quartz crystal was first applied to timekeeping; the maximum error of an observatory quartz-crystal clock is only a few ten-thousandths of a second per day. The first atomic clock went into operation in 1951. Atomic clocks, regulated by the natural periodic behaviour of a system of atoms (such as vibrations or emission of radiation), can have accuracies exceeding one billionth of a second per day, making them the most accurate clocks yet invented
measure the time or duration of an event or action or the person who performs an action in a certain period of time; "he clocked the runners"

An object used to abstract time in Mach
To take notice of
also known as a molecular clock One of the most important assumptions that is often made using molecular data is the existence of a clock In other words, there is sometimes an assumption being made either implicitly or explicitly that the rate of change of residues in molecules is approximately constant Making this assumption is fraught with dangers, but a great many empirical studies have shown that (with some errors) the assumption of a clock often holds true If there are some good reference points (say, fossils or significant geological events) it is sometimes possible to use molecular data to estimate the time of events for which there is no other alternative
The original 645 shipped with a separate box that was a microsecond realtime clock with the ability to interrupt any CPU On the 6180, the clock moved into the SCU and didn't take up a port See SCAS The calendar clock value read by the rccl instruction is 52 bits (right-justified in the 72-bit AQ register) Story: "Multics Calendar Clock Calculations"
