Can anybody explains why the slew-rate test of PCI output buffer in PCI
spec. 2.1 uses 1Kohms to Vcc and 1Kohms to Gnd
in addition to 10pF cap. to Gnd ? I can understand the use of 10pF cap. in
the test set-up but I cannot understand why 1Kohms
resistors are being use? Any comment(s) are deeply appreciated.
