skewing time, internal (of a digital-to-analog converter)

The difference in internal delay between the individual output transitions for a given change of digital input.

NOTE The internal (as well as external) skew has a major influence on the settling time for critical changes in the digital input, e.g., a 1-LSB change from 011...111 to 100...000, and is an important source of commutation noise.
