What system has the smallest delay for its gain? It is possible to have many systems, each with the same gain but with a different delay. In fact, it is always possible to have systems with very great delays because the largeness of the delay that can be incorporated into a system has no theoretical limit. On the other hand, the smallness of the delay that a system can possess is limited because a system always takes some time to respond significantly to an input. The system with the smallest possible delay for its gain is called the minimum-delay system.
