Questions tagged [slew-rate]

Anything related to slew rate (SR in datasheets), i.e. a characteristic parameter of analog amplifier circuits (notably operational amplifiers). The slew rate of an amplifier is the maximum rate of variation that the input signal can exhibit in order for the output amplified signal to follow it without distortion.
