Clock generators are devices used to generate clock signals to provide a stable and accurate time reference for various electronic devices. In digital circuits, the clock generator is usually used as a timing controller, for a variety of logic gates and registers into the synchronised pulse signal, to achieve stable data transmission; in computer chips, the clock generator is responsible for generating the CPU clock as well as a variety of input and output interfaces for timing control.

Clock generators are important electronic components, the main role is to produce a stable pulse signal and provide accurate time reference. At present, the most commonly used clock generators are crystal oscillators, RC oscillatorsvoltage controlled oscillators, PLL phase-locked loop and other types.
