Interpretation of Klein-Gordon equation

Comparing the Klein-Gordon equation to the equation of motion for a classical harmonic oscillator, I notice that for a particle of mass m,

[tex] \frac {mc^2}{\hbar} [/tex]

is a frequency.

Does this frequency have a physical meaning?
 
1,075
25
That is the compton frequency.
