In order to write wiring rules from one technology's driver to another technology's receiver, the amount of receiver input voltage that may be allowed to go transiently outside the maximum and minimum voltages that the receiver input is designed for must be specified. This specification must be made in terms of maximum voltage amplitude as a function of 50 percent amplitude pulse width, for pulses occurring at a repetition rate of 3 times the technology minimum signal pulse width, as shown in Fig. 1. PA is the peak transient pulse amplitude measured from a design voltage maximum, and PW is the pulse width measured at 50 percent of the peak amplitude (PA).
