Definition: shmoo plot

A graphical representation of selected test parameters in an electronic circuit where inputs such as voltage and clock frequency are constantly varied. The graph tends to show shifting, rounded curves that resemble the lumpy, bubble-shaped shmoo character in the Li'l Abner comic strip series. The term is also a verb: "to shmoo" is to run the test.
