Bit-Synchronous Operation
  • A mode of operation in which data circuit-terminating equipment, data terminal equipment, and transmitting circuits are all operated synchronously with a clock.
  • 1. Note 1: Clock timing is delivered at twice the modulation rate, and one bit is transmitted or received during each clock cycle.
  • 2. Note 2: Bit-synchronous operation is sometimes erroneously referred to as "digital synchronization. " See also binary digit, clock, data circuit-terminating equipment, data terminal equipment, synchronization, terminal.
