3.7.4. Operation with asynchronous TCK

You can use the ETM7 in systems that have a fully asynchronous TCK and CLK. All synchronization issues are taken care of in the ETM7. All groups of signals are synchronous to the relevant clock:

Slow system clock speeds

The ETM7 contains synchronizing D-types to synchronize between the TCK timing domain and the CLK timing domain. When the system clock speed is very slow, this synchronization time causes a delay of several cycles before you can disable tracing.
