Digital jitter measurement and separation
McClure, Mark Scott

This thesis examines a method of measuring jitter and separating the random and deterministic components without the use of overly expensive jitter measurement or analysis equipment. Relatively inexpensive, on-hand equipment is used to achieve this objective. Period measurements were made on an Agilent Infiniium oscilloscope and recorded by a PC. The data was post processed in MATLAB, and a histogram tail-fitting algorithm measured and separated the deterministic and random jitter.
