Lesson 7: Clocks and Oscillators
The heart and soul of any digital system is the main clock signal. It drives every single flip-flop that is inside of the system and therefore it is the most important signal. In this lesson we will learn how to use a 555 timer as a clock signal generator and we will also look at using crystal oscillators to generate clock signals.
