7. Clock Jitter

This chapter first discusses data jitter and clock jitter definitions and their roles in synchronized computer systems and asynchronized communication systems. Then it discusses the definitions of various kinds of jitter, such as phase jitter, period jitter, and cycle-to-cycle jitter, as well as their interrelationships using the uniform nature of a clock signal waveform. Last, this chapter covers clock jitter and its relationship with phase noise, including the conversion from phase jitter to phase noise and vice versa.
