STEM: Too Much or Not Enough?

Around the time I graduated college, starting salaries for engineering graduates were climbing rapidly. My first raise was a whopping 13 percent, so I could be making slightly more than the next year's crop of EE graduates.

Jitter: Measurement References Matter
MeasurementBlues   11/8/2013 10:19:40 AM

If you characterize high-speed digital signals, you're surely familiar with the idea of separating jitter into components such as random jitter (RJ), deterministic jitter (DJ), periodic jitter (PJ), and intersymbol interference (ISI). What is not always discussed is the reference from which jitter measurements are made.

Check out the animated graphics of sinusoidal jitter.
