slew rate

[′slü ‚rāt]
(computer science)
The speed at which a logic-seeking print head advances to the succeeding line and finds the position where it is to start printing.
(control systems)
The maximum rate at which a system can follow a command.
(electronics)
The maximum rate at which the output voltage of an operational amplifier changes for a square-wave or step-signal input; usually specified in volts per microsecond.

slew rate

(1) How fast paper moves through a printer (ips).

(2) The speed of changing voltage.

If one were to look at a number of op amps, it may seem that the bandwidth and slew rate are directly related, because as the one goes higher, so does the other.
It supports the CC, CV, CR, and CP modes and provides a transient generator, a variable slew rate, soft start, and a current monitor output.
From the data sheets for a typical 133 MHz DDR SDRAM, the non-dated slew rate limits are specified as 1V/nS and 4V/n[S.
The PA107DP is capable of slew rates up to 3000 V/os, which raises the bar for single-package hybrids.
