Why should you be concerned about jitter? What impact does jitter have on system performance?
Timing jitter is the unwelcome companion of all electrical systems that use voltage transitions to represent timing information. Historically, electrical systems have lessened the ill effects of timing jitter (or, simply “jitter”) by employing relatively low signaling rates. As a consequence, jitter-induced errors have been small when compared with the time intervals that they corrupt. The timing margins associated with today’s high-speed serial buses and data links reveal that a tighter control of jitter is needed throughout the system design.
Timing jitter has always degraded electrical systems, but the drive to higher data rates and lower logic swings has focused increasing interest and concern on its characterization. Characterization is needed to identify sources of jitter for reduction by redesign. It also serves to define, identify or measure jitter for compliance standards and design specifications.
This Jitter Tutorial focuses primarily on jitter in electrical systems.
After reading this tutorial, you will be able to:
- Understand and characterize timing jitter
- Know the consequences of jitter
- Understand jitter measurement, visualization and separation
- Know the difference between jitter and bit error rate
