*By slew rate, the global high voltage amplifier market is segmented into 15-50 V/[micro sign]s, 50-500 V/[micro sign]s, 500-1000 V/[micro sign]s, 1000-2000 V/[micro sign]s, and more than 2000 V/[micro sign]s.
* Adjustable / programmable slew rate and device bias current also provide the means to actively manage overall digital subsystem power dissipation.
to maximize the input slew rate it's best to locate the clock driver as close to the source as possible, use a differential input, which effectively doubles the slew rate--plus has the advantage of common-mode noise rejection--maintain a full-level input swing (do not attenuate the input unless maximum levels are exceeded), and optimize impedance matching as reflections will also degrade input slew rate."

Also, the circuit not only exhibits good slew rate performance but also has an acceptable frequency behaviour.
For this case study, all the measurements in test mode (excepting the slew rate) are performed using the internal ADC.
Per Jedec specifications, the slew rates of the signals determine how much more or less setup and hold time is required at the memory, on top of the base setup and hold requirements.
The output voltage for each phase has a maximum value of 450 V and is characterized by its slew rate d (dV/dt).
Additional parameters including chamber pressure, temperature, maximum spin speed, slew rate (centrifuge's angular acceleration), and time step for the numerical integration ([DELTA] t) are specified.
Tracing its lineage back to ADI's market-leading AD620 low-drift, low-power in amp, the new high-bandwidth AD8429 in amp is one of the fastest in amps on the market with a current feedback architecture that offers 15 MHz (G=1) bandwidth and a 22-V/?s slew rate, which is 30 percent higher than competing in amps.
The "lean design" XL-80 laser calibration system features a 4X faster slew rate, 10X higher dynamic data capture rate, and an overall lighter and more portable package than previous industry-standard models.
Another performance highlight is the very high slew rate, enabling fast response to the rapid rise and fall times of high-speed data signals.
