Jitter: Measurement References Matter
MeasurementBlues   11/8/2013 10:19:40 AM
NO RATINGS
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.
