What is meant by latency in VLSI?

Definition of clock latency (clock insertion delay): In sequential designs, each timing path is triggered by a clock signal that originates from a source. In general, clock latency (or clock insertion delay) is defined as the amount of time taken by the clock signal in traveling from its source to the sinks.

Moreover, what is clock latency in VLSI?

Clock Latency is the general term for the delay that the clock signal takes between any two points. Clock Latency is the total delay that a clock signal takes to reach a sink or a destination pin, which typically is the clock pin of the flip-flops or the latches, from a clock source.

What is clock skew in VLSI?

Clock skew (sometimes called timing skew) is a phenomenon in synchronous digital circuit systems (such as computer systems) in which the same sourced clock signal arrives at different components at different times i.e. the instantaneous difference between the readings of any two clocks is called their skew.

What is a clock jitter?

In electronics and telecommunications, jitter is the deviation from true periodicity of a presumably periodic signal, often in relation to a reference clock signal. In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter. Jitter frequency, the more commonly quoted figure, is its inverse.
