However, clipping error is enough low and then quantization error is low, too.
The phase margin (colored part of the bit) is caused by several effects: quantization error, shift due to oscillator tolerance, bit asymmetry due to the above mentioned physical layer components, and instability of the RX signal due to ringing on the bus lines caused by impedance mis-matches [4.
