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.

Carvajal, "Low-voltage super class AB CMOS OTA cells with very high slew rate and power efficiency", IEEE Journal of.
As mentioned in Section 3.4, the Timer-A is working at the highest allowed frequency (8 MHz), producing quantization errors in the slew rate measurements of 1.532%, 4.226%, and 7.154% for the slow, medium, and fast configurations, respectively.
It can be noted that the slew rate, as expected, has a significant impact on the two considered quantities.
Figure 7 shows the peak SNR for various OTA DC gain, bandwidth and slew rate. Based on these results, OTA needs to have more than 60 dB DC gain, at least 350 MHz closed loop bandwidth and more than 300 V/us slew rate.
The new gradient packages, the Vantage MGV and the work-in-progress ZGV, feature gradient strengths of 30 mT/m and 33 mT/m (milliTesla per meter) and slew rates of 86 mT/m/sec and 200 mT/m/sec (milliTesla per meter per second), respectively.
As with the envelope detector, the output can never go negative, resulting in the loop having a similar tendency towards slew rate limited behavior when reacting to abrupt decreases in input amplitude.
As crosstalk is proportional to the change in current over time, it can be reduced by limiting the rise and fall times, or slew rate, of the bus drivers.
With a slew rate up to 5 m/s and data rates up to 1,000 data/sec, the LB 500 can also determine the actual feed rate, velocity and acceleration profiles.
The input impedance is 50K ohms, polarity is noninverting, and the slew rate is 60 v/[micro]s.
This meant designing a telescope with a large FOV and a quick slew rate. UM staff believed the answer would lie in a telescope control system they call the Robotic Optical Transient Search Experiment (ROTSE), to be placed at Los Alamos (N.M.) National Laboratory.
These figures are nothing to complain about but perhaps are not as fast as the advertised slew rate of 10 [degrees] per second would lead you to believe.
Additionally, the low input-voltage noise of 0.98 nV/?Hz minimizes noise contribution from the amplifier, and the high slew rate of 2750 V/s enables wide output voltage swings.
