There are six limiting conditions upon which a curve may prematurely terminate:
E < Limit
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.
