4. Jitter, Noise, BER (JNB), and Interrelationships

This chapter first discusses the total jitter PDF and its relationship to the PDFs of its components. Then it presents the similar relationship for the total noise PDF to the PDFs of its components. After that, this chapter discusses the two-dimensional joint PDF and BER CDF when both jitter and noise are considered.

4.1. Eye Diagrams and BER Basics

This subsection is a high-level introduction to BER, eye diagrams, and their interrelationships with timing jitter and amplitude noise.

A bit error for a serial data communication system can be caused by one of the following:

  • Timing jitter that causes an edge transition to be either earlier or later referenced to an ideal timing location
  • Amplitude ...
