a measurement of time that passes before something takes place
The time interval between when a drive signal is applied to a segment and the time when it is fully on. Conversely it can also be the time between when the drive signal is removed from a segment and the time at which it turns fully off. Usually expressed in milliseconds.
The time spent processing a call after it arrives at a switch before it is either queued or presented to a Help Desk professional.
The time for collector current to reach 10% of its maximum value in a BJT switching circuit.
The amount of time required between the input and the output caused. The amount of time required for a signal to pass through a device or component. When rewritten as TIME DELAY means a time-of-flight per unit length over the signal path, a material property parameter related to the dialectic constant (the square root of) of the material medium containing the signal path.
