HFAN-04.3.0: Jitter Specifications Made Easy: A Heuristic Discussion of Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet Methods

By: Ron Olisar

Abstract: The jitter working group of the Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA), after countless cups of high-octane coffee, produced \"Methodologies of Jitter Specification.\" Within this report is probably the most approachable and self-consistent strategy for jitter measurement and specification of any standards effort. A central observation addressed here is the consistent use, within Fibre Channel standards, of a simple, single-pole weighting for all jitter measurements in a serial link (channel) based on receiver jitter tolerance.
