The following terms describe some of the common AC waveform characteristics.
The following figure illustrates rise and fall time.
|Note Together, overshoot, preshoot, and undershoot are called aberrations.|
The following figure illustrates settling time on a digital signal.
The following figure shows the difference between two waveforms with different duty cycles. Notice that the 30% duty-cycle waveform is at logic high level for less time than the 50% duty cycle waveform.
