I was reading J.Bhasker's STATIC TIMING ANALYSIS book. In that book, he tells that when launch flip flop launches the data & while capture flip flop is capturing data, he says that
We now examine a simple example, shown in Figure 8-2, where both the launch and capture flip-flops have the same clock. The first rising edge of clock CLKM appears at time Tlaunch at launch flip-flop. The data launched by this clock edge appears at time T launch + T ck2q + Tdp at the D pin of the flip-flop UFF1. The second rising edge of the clock (setup is normally checked after one cycle) appears at time Tcycle + Tcapture at the clock pin of the capture flip-flop UFF1.
Why is he saying that "setup is normally checked after one clock cycle"?
Why can't we consider the clock before the very next active edge?
