[SI-LIST] : How to do correlation with two extra Rising/Falling waveforms?

Hi ,

In the IBIS Forum's I/O BUFFER MODELING COOKBOOK, page 12, there is a
table - "Recommended Load Circuits and Waveforms for V/T Data
Extraction."

In the table, there are 4 waveforms to extract V/T data for [Rising
Waveform] and [Falling Waveform] for a standard push/pull CMOS type
buffer.

I/O buffer+ R-fixture+V_fixture.

For falling edge, two waveforms are obtained based on
(1) V_fixture=0, and
(2) V_fixture=VCC.

For rising edge, two waveforms are gathered based on
(3) V_fixture=0, and
(4) V_fixture=VCC.

The cookbook uses (2) and (3) to extract data in [Ramp] and says (1)
and (4) are for correlation.

How is the correlation done?
What information can be extracted from (1) and (4)?

Inside the Quad Design XTK manual, the (1) and (4) can be used to
generate Ground
Bounce Model. How?

Any inputs from you are appreciated.

Thanks,
