Measuring the Output Jitter of the MAX999 Comparator
In some applications where a high-speed comparator like the MAX999 is used to square an input sinusoidal signal to generate an output clock, it may be important to know the jitter of the generated clock. This application note reviews basic jitter theory and presents a circuit that can be used to extrapolate the jitter of the MAX999. The jitter measurement is then correlated to the input-referred voltage noise of the comparator.
