That's right! It is very important for emulators to have timing
specifications the same as the real thing. Otherwise, you don't really
emulate. I'm in the 32-bit CPU emulator business.
But the different clock phases in focus here are internal to the PIC.
This was in reply (or rather an affirming remark?) to Thomas Coonan. The
question is raised with regards to the design of the PIC.
In larger (32-bit, 64-bit), such different clock phases may be required
because of several instruction pipeline stages. In the PIC, there are
only 2 instruction pipeline.
What happens during the different clock phases--that's the question.
Thanks for clearing it out.
