An Uncertainty Analysis of the High-Speed Pulse Parameter Measurements at NIST

Published

Author(s)

Nicholas Paulter, Donald R. Larson

Abstract

A detailed uncertainty analysis for NIST's pulse parameter measurement service is presented that represents the new pulse parameter measurement and extraction processes. Uncertainties for pulse amplitude, transition duration, overshoot, and under(pre)shoot are given. Effects of temperature, temperature variation, impulse response estimate, pulse parameter extraction algorithms, time-base distortion, calibration procedures, and the waveform reconstruction process are included.
