This is a signal diagram of a transmitter. I don't know the mean of parts are shown in the image. What kind of signals are they? What are their meanings? enter image description here

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


Essentially those figures are describing uncertainty.

For the Send signal it could be transitioning from high-to-low anywhere in that region, for the PDin bus, any of the eight signals could be transitioning, low-to-high or high-to-low, in that region.

What it's telling you is that those signals are not valid during that time. Once Send goes high, the next positive edge of Clk will sample the parallel data on PDin. Then the serial data, MSB first, will be clocked out by SCout and SDout.

  • \$\begingroup\$ My aim is to detect first high of Send. Then get the PDin with that positive edge of Clk. am I right? \$\endgroup\$ – ffttyy Apr 20 '15 at 18:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ffttyy Correct, you want Clk & Send. \$\endgroup\$ – Samuel Apr 20 '15 at 19:15
