Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
The maximum rate at which an amplifier can respond to an abrupt change of input level.
- ‘In plain English the slew rate of a power supply tells you how quickly the power supply is able to respond to a power surge without the voltage level dropping too much, thus the higher the number the better.’
- ‘While this correction resolved the slew rate issue, it makes it harder to solve the newly discovered signal strength problem.’
- ‘This overshoot can also be controlled by limiting output slew rate, but as mentioned above this solution will be problematic if greater bus speed is desired.’
- ‘Additionally, these authors utilized a high-temperature slew rate possibly implicating a kinetic effect in its formation.’
- ‘The slew rate of the cannon is 90 degrees per second.’
