Inside the application note we can get explanation like jitter measurement, transition, jitter period, and data. This application note presents information regarding term jitter, measurement, measurement techniques, and clock jitter.
There are many explanation related to output transition, jitter measurements, method, and measurements are presented inside the application note. The following are some excerpt from this application note:
Jitter Measurement Techniques by Nelson Soo Clock Jitter Jitter can be defined as the deviations in a clock’s output transition from their ideal positions. The deviation can either be leading or lagging the ideal position. Jitter is usually specified in ± pico seconds. Jitter measurements can be classified into three categories: cycle-to-cycle jitter, period jitter, and long-term jitter. All jitter measurements are at a specified voltage, usually Vcc/2 or 1.5V. Analyzer (TIA). Figure 1. depicts the graphical representation of cycle-to-cycle jitter. J1 and J2 are the jitter values measured for single ended signals. The maximum of such values measured over multiple cycles is the maximum cycle- to-cycle jitter. Large cycle-to-cycle jitter can cause a system to fail
