The following figure explains the components used in timing diagrams. Variations, when they occur, have clear labels. You must not assume any timing information that is not explicit in the diagrams.
Shaded bus and signal areas are undefined, so the bus or signal can assume any value within the shaded area at that time. The actual level is unimportant and does not affect normal operation.
The signal conventions are:
The level of an asserted signal depends on whether the signal is active-HIGH or active-LOW. Asserted means:
HIGH for active-HIGH signals.
LOW for active-LOW signals.
At the start or end of a signal name denotes an active-LOW signal.
