Loop Cycle Time

Last Modified: April 19, 2018

Many applications that require a real-time operating system are cyclic, such as a control application. The time between the start and finish of each cycle, T, is called the loop cycle time (or sample period). 1/T is the loop rate or sample rate. Even with real-time operating systems, the loop cycle time can vary between cycles, but will not be greater than the maximum jitter.
