I segnali […] sono speculari.

Ciao tutti,

Creco di rendere il seguente nel modo più naturale, ma non so quale sarebbe :):
I segnali sul CAN(+) e sul CAN(-) sono speculari. Nel momento in cui il CAN(+) viene aumentato, il rispettivo CAN(-) viene abbassato.
Si tratta della CAN (Controller Area Network) di una macchina. Il senso mi pare piuttosto chiaro, ma non saprei dire il modo migliore di tradurre speculare in questo senso. Ho diverse idee, ma non so cosa scegliere:

the signals are specular (I find hits for "specular signal", but not in similar contexts)
the signals are mirrored (but I think this implies a deliberate modification of one of the signals and I don’t think that’s implied in the source)
the signals mirror one another (my preference at the moment)
the signals have an inverse relationship
the signals are inversely related

Does anybody have any more decisive thoughts on the matter?

Thanks,
Mark

    Ciao,

    The signals on CAN(+) and CAN(-) are mirrored/opposite/complementary/inverted. When CAN(+) increases (CAN(-) decreases.

    Is it a digital or analog signal?

    If digital you can say "inverted".

    Thanks Tim. I don’t think it can be considered digital: aumentato and abbassato would be strange in that case. Think it’s an analogue variation in voltage.

    If it's analog then "complementary" is commonly used.
    If digital go for "inverted" and it makes the rest simple.

    The signals on CAN(+) and CAN(-) are complementary. While CAN(+) rises/increases, CAN(-) falls/decreases.


    The signals on CAN(+) and CAN(-) are inverted. When CAN(+) is high/goes high, CAN(-) is low/goes low.
