Rise/Fall time trigger, can also be referred to as Slope or Slew rate trigger. This trigger measures the time the signal takes to transition between two voltage thresholds: from a lower threshold to an upper threshold in the case of rise time, or the opposite in the case of fall time.
The scope triggers when the measured transition time meets a user-specified time condition: greater than, less than, inside a range, or outside a range of times. Unlike window pulse width trigger, rise/fall-time trigger allows you to trigger specifically on rising edges or on falling edges that meet a time condition. This can be useful if the expected slew rate of rising and falling edges is different in your system.
Rise/Fall time trigger is available in PicoScope 7. You can find out more in our new A to Z entry.
