        sorry, it's not clear to me exactly what you are
referring to. If you mean the i1d3 refresh mode, then the
measured refresh period will be the longest one found above
20Hz (==50 msec). This errs on the conservative side and allows
for possible sub-harmonics in (say) a temporal dithering pattern.
As long as the measurement period (integration time) is a multiple
of the actual refresh period, it will have better repeatability than
a measurement period that isn't matched. So a 96Hz refresh
would be expected to result in a refresh period measurement
of 41.66 msec, rather than the true refresh period of 10.4167 msec.
