signal slope

signal slope

In a chip, the time it takes for a signal to switch from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0. Although extremely fast, it is not instantaneous and can be measured in picoseconds (ps) and nanoseconds (ns).

As mentioned in Section 5, in the designs of SRMCML circuits, the sufficient margin of the hard constraints including gain, voltage swing ratio (VSR), and signal slope ratio (SSR) must be set for those variations in process, voltage, and matching conditions.
where [r.sup.+.sub.i-1] is the crossed reference level at the rising signal's slope, [r.sup.-.sub.i-1] is the crossed reference level at the falling signal slope in the time instant [t.sub.i-1] and d([t.sub.i-1] ) is the digitized time interval value.
