Oscillator Jitter Basics

By MtronPTI

Noise elements that cause clock signal periods to vary are known as jitter. Jitter is composed of deterministic sources such as power supply, and random content sources such as thermal vibrations. This white paper from MtronPTI presents in-depth information on the definition of jitter, different types of jitter sources, how to measure jitter, and how to correlate jitter from supplier to customer.
