Measuring Jitter With Electronic Instruments
Jitter is theoretically defined as the short term non-cumulative variations
of significant instants of a digital signal from its ideal position in time.
Two common methods of measuring jitter are:
Period jitter with a digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) or time
interval analyzer (TIA). This measurement is usually made in pSec.
Phase jitter measurements are made over a specific frequency
band and recalculated to the time domain. This method is used
typically for SONET equipment jitter specifications.
These measurements are usually made in pSec RMS in ___KHz to __MHz.
