Main component of phase time error of clocks in communication systems is flicker noise. This paper describes computer simulation algorithm of clock error. First, the standard for clock stability is introduced. Flicker noise is generated from white noise sequences by means of an algorithm. Relation between stage number, time constant and bandwidth are introduced. With the help of this algorithm, flicker noise is generated.
