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).

Jain, "To design high CMRR, high slew rate instrumentation amplifier using OTA and CDTA for biomedical application", International Journal of Engineering Research, vol.
Each OAM has seven groups of configuration signals: gain selection (3 bits), output selection (2 bits), mode selection (3 bits), slew rate selection (2 bits), input rail-to-rail mode selection (1bit), P-input selection (2 bits), and N-input selection (2 bits).
In order to evaluate the influence of the slew rate of the applied voltage three values have been considered in the simulations, d = [0.5, 1.5, 3.0] kV/[micro]s.
Slew rate (SR) and Bandwidth (BW) limitation [12,13] can lead to a non-ideal transient response within each clock cycle, thus producing an incomplete or inaccurate charge transfer to the output at the end of the integration period.
* Increased slew rate which will improve engagement times and provide "hooks" for future enhancements that will leverage sensors and provide automatic slew to target on demand.
The Vantage features an ultra-short magnet at 140 cm with linear 30 mT/m (milliTesla per meter) gradient strength with a slew rate of 50 T/m/s (Tesla per meter per second), or 130 T/m/s.

The system features an amplitude of 25 mT/m and a slew rate of 100 mT/m/sec.
The ISL8489E is a 250-kbps data rate device that has slew rate limited drivers intended for long-run applications.
The high slew rate is required in order to point the laser at the threat missile and begin jamming as early as possible.
In the slew rate limited region, the gain of the signal path is varying at a constant number of dB per second.
Additional abilities, accessible through a built-in serial peripheral interface (SPI), include: output on/off control; configurable over-current detection levels and blanking times for fuse emulation; selectable output slew rate control; device input status feedback; specific fault information and device status reporting; daisy chain capabilities; and a configurable turn-on delay for load demand optimization.
