Synchronous circuit design

The unique feature of a synchronous digital circuit is that the circuit only changes in response to a main clock. There may be other clock signals in the design but they have to be "synchronized" to the main clock and any other clock signal must have a known relationship in time to the main clock. A basic example of logic unit that works on this very feature is a flip flop which is triggered on a clock edge.
