There are six limiting conditions upon which a curve may prematurely terminate:
1. Under |
E < Limit |
2. Over |
E > Limit |
3. Stable | abs(dE/dt) < Limit |
4. Runaway | abs(dE/dt) > Limit |
5. Decreasing | dE/dt < Limit |
6. Increasing | dE/dt > Limit |
The Over criterion is used to limit a positive voltage swing. The Under criterion limits a negative voltage swing. The Runaway criterion limits the rate of change in potential. The Stable criterion is used to run a sample until it shows stable behavior. The Decreasing and Increasing conditions are signed versions of the Stable and Runaway criteria.
These conditions may be individually enabled and disabled.
