    Settling time is very important for data acquisition systems because it is the primary factor that defines the data rate for a given error level. Therefore settling time measurement is a crucial test. The goal of the project was to design, test and compare different measurement techniques. Three methods were tested to the accuracies of 0.1% and 0.01%. Also simulations were conducted to explain the parameters that affect the settling behavior. Additionally bench measurements were correlated to simulation results. This report is intended as a guide for settling time measurements.
