> Risetime and falltime are often mentioned in SI world, and
> sometimes used to classify lots of problems. My question is when we
> talk about a risetime of 1 ns, are we talking about loaded risetime?
> or unloaded risetime? If loaded, then what's the default load used,
> for example, a driver(I/O cell) might have a measured risetime of more
> than 1 ns with it's load, yet from simulation we can run it without
> any load, then the risetime might become less than 1 ns, so how should
> we define the risetime of this pad.
