(redirected from Slew rate)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical, Financial, Acronyms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.


Value, measure, or degree; a charge, payment, or price determined through the application of a mathematical formula or based upon a scale or standard.

For example, an interest rate is determined by the ratio between the principal and interest.

Rate is also used synonymously with tax.

Positive and negative slew rates of the circuit are obtained as 223 V/[micro]s and 162 V/[micro]s, respectively.

The UM's specifications were high: a 2 [degrees] FOV with a small focal length, and a fast slew rate of 6-are-deg/sec.
Slew rate is the edge rate (rate of change of a signal voltage with respect to time) measured between two defined voltage levels.
The EL5166 and EL5167 offer 6,000 volt-per-microsecond slew rates while exhibiting low distortion of 1.7 nanovolts (nV) per root hertz.
The amplifier has 600 MHz of bandwidth and a slew rate of 1000 V per microsecond.
The LDS is able to manipulate numbers very rapidly which is required to maintain accuracy of 10 millionths of an inch at the Mazak SQT 15MS's slew rate of 1160 ipm.
The 16x slew rate isn't fast enough to center objects quickly in the telescope's finder, so I would like to see a manual slow-motion control added.
Fast rise-time step inputs are particularly useful in measurement of amplifier overshoot, ringing, settling time, stability, and slew rate (a way to express voltage transition time in terms of change in voltage over time).
In addition, the FAN53525 Series offers a programmable slew rate for voltage transitions, PFM mode for high efficiency in light load, input under-voltage lockout (UVLO), thermal shutdown and overload protection, and comes in a 15-bump wafer-level chip scale package (WLCSP).
For example, in the current range for the Model N3302A, the maximum slew rate is specified as 2.5 MA/s: below 3 V, the maximum slew rate would be 250 kA/s." The footnote explains that if you have programmed a high-frequency pulse train, the reduced slew rates may result in the pulses never reaching their maximum/minimum values.
For many tests that require that you simulate real-world conditions, such as fluctuations in voltage, sags, surges, dropouts, or spikes, you need a source with a fast slew rate. An AC source's slew rate is the time it takes the source to respond to a change in the programmed voltage or frequency.
