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.

The slew rate at each pin is only a few amps/[mu]s, and most of the transient current is provided by local capacitors.
The set of lumped capacitor model calculations relied on the capacitive nature of the transmission line to calculate the signal slew rate.
d) Determine the slew rate and gain-bandwidth requirements required to handle the signal.
This is especially important in handsets and other portable devices where suppressing transients with a slower turn-on time or slew rate is essential.
The device is available in three slew rate options to suit a variety of load requirements.
The M21428 is pin compatible with the M21418 and M21408 (except the M21408 has no SD/HD slew rate control).
Coupled with an adjustable voltage slew rate, the NIS5112 allows the designer the versatility to easily select the level at which current is limited and the rate the output voltage comes up for multiple applications.
