Hi there,

So sorry, again with my lousy questions. Is it right to say that duty ratio express in terms of ratio with no unit. Where as duty cycle is expressed in terms of percentage?

Thanks in advance.

Duty cycle and duty ratio is the same thing, and percentage is also a ratio ie. 5% =5/100, is it not?
Regards,

Duty cycle is expeassed as the duty cycle. For example: the clock duty clock is 49%. It means that the clock duty cycle is 49% duty cycle.
