Terminology definition SOLVED

Can you help me what "one frame delay" means in a practical digital control logic circuit?

Thank you

If you want to send parallel data down a serial link, then you must first convert a chunk of parallel data to serial (using a PISO register). Each chunk of serial data is a frame, usually with start and end data added. Successive chunks of serial data are known as frames, and follow each other down the serial line. The time interval between one starting and the next starting is one frame delay.

At the receiving end the serial data is converted back to parallel in a SIPO register which is synchronised by the frame start and stop data.
