      • 1. Re: What is the type of jitter specified by tKC Var (Clock Phase Jitter) in DDR/QDR Sync SRAM?
                The QDR Consortium officially specifies input-clock phase jitter as cycle-to-cycle jitter which measures the change in clock period measurement between any two adjacent clock cycles. Mathematically, it can be represented as: Tcycle (n) – Tcycle (n+1) where Tcycle (n) and Tcycle (n+1) are any two adjacent cycles measured on controlled edges. Suppose the part is operated at 250 MHz. Then the K clock period should be ideally 4 ns. 1. For zero jitter, Tcycle (n) =Tcycle (n+1) =4 ns. 2. If Tcycle (n) =4 ns and Tcycle (n+1) = 3.9 ns, then the jitter would be (4 ns-3.9 ns) =0.1 ns. This calculated jitter should be less than or equal to the tKC Var parameter specified in the datasheet for proper operation
