Interest Rate

The percentage of the value of a balance or debt that one pays or is paid each time period. For example, if one holds a bond with a face value of $1,000 and a 3% interest rate payable each quarter, one receives $30 each quarter. The percentage of the interest rate remains constant (usually), but the amount one pays or is paid changes according to the amount of the balance or debt. For example, if one pays off part of the principal on a loan each month, the amount one pays in interest decreases even though the rate remains the same. See also: Time Value of Money.

The data indicates that a PCB targeted for 50 [ohm] will not violate the slew rate requirements (for trace lengths about 2 inches long) with an impedance tolerance of [+ or -] 20%.
This is especially important in handsets and other portable devices where suppressing transients with a slower turn-on time or slew rate is essential.
For example, the OPA875 single-channel and OPA3875 three channel 2:1 multiplexers feature a small signal bandwidth of 700 MHz with a slew rate of 3100 V/us which supports a large signal bandwidth of 425 MHz at 4Vpp.
A high slew rate of 9 volts per microsecond (9V/us) enables more precise measurements, while the small TSSOP can be used in compact, dense designs where large arrays are required.
The THS3001 outperforms competing devices in bandwidth, slew rate and distortion performance.
Both devices have a programmable DAC slew rate to minimize transient currents and audible noise.
CMR is the maximum slew rate of common mode voltage (VCM) which can be sustained, keeping the output in the correct logic state.
High-drive bus clock outputs typically provide greater than 1V/ns slew rate into 30pF loads.
