Title: Method and apparatus for controlling timing of digital components

Abstract: The present invention provides a method for controlling a timing of a digital component having an impedance-input terminal. The method includes determining an impedance level present at the impedance-input terminal, and delaying the timing of the digital component based on the impedance level. The present invention also provides a digital component and a system, where the digital component includes an impedance-input terminal and an impedance matching circuit that is capable of determining an impedance level present at the impedance-input terminal. The digital component also includes a delay circuit that is capable of delaying a timing of the digital component based on the impedance level.
