# total jitter (TJ)

Jitter is divided into random jitter (RJ), deterministic jitter

(DJ) and total jitter (TJ).

JitterThe absolute jitter is composed as the sum of different jitters. Since a complete evaluation of absolute jitter is not possible, noise

and the Gaussian distribution function have been included and total jitter has been defined as the product of noise and the sum of random jitter (RJ) and deterministic jitter (DJ). While statistical jitter is reported as the rms value, deterministic jitter is reported as the peak-to-peak value. Total Jitter often refers to a bit error rate of 10exp-12.
