An analysis for calculating data-dependent jitter (DDJ) in a first-order system is introduced. The predicted DDJ features unique threshold crossing times with self-similar geometry. An approximation for DDJ in second-order systems is described in terms of the damping factor and natural frequency. Higher order responses demonstrate conditions under which unique threshold crossing times do not exist and total jitter is minimized. The DDJ predictions are verified with jitter measurements in a bandwidth-limited amplifier. The predictions for both first and second-order systems anticipate the features of the observed jitter.
