Webinar: Debugging High Speed Serial Links

Date: Tue, April 17, 2018
Time: 1:00PM Eastern
Duration: 60 Minutes


High speed serial communication technologies have been growing increasingly popular due to faster data communications, smaller form factors and lower power requirements. However, this has also created several signal integrity challenges.

Evolution of serial communication standards have put stringent requirements on systems with respect to jitter and eye diagram margins and bit error rates. A thorough understanding of the underlying concepts is required to meet these requirements.

Join us for this webinar as we discuss fundamentals of serial links including transmitter and receiver equalization techniques, channel de-embedding and jitter analysis. We will introduce several techniques for debugging serial links using Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes.

Webinar: New Oscilloscope Techniques for EMC/EMI/ESD Testing

Date: Wed, May 16, 2018
Time: 2:00PM Eastern
Duration: 60 Minutes


The digital oscilloscope has become the most commonly used test tool on the EMC engineer’s bench, but most engineers use only a fraction of the power available in these instruments. In addition, there are several overlooked aspects which can significantly impact signal integrity and EMC measurement results. 

Join us for this webinar as we uncover oscilloscope tools that can assist with advanced and more accurate methods for performing EMC testing.

Measurements included in our discussion will be:

  • ESD pulse verification
  • EFT Electrical Fast Transient Debugging Techniques
  • Surge Testing
  • Radiated Immunity Testing
  • ESD RC Time Constant Measurement
  • MIL-STD-461G
  • RTCA/DO-160G
  • Voltages Referenced Below Battery Level
  • Sample Rate Effect on ESD Pulse Measurements
  • Application Examples and More

Low Frequency Passive and High Frequency Active Probing Techniques and Tradeoffs – What to Use and Why

When: Available on Demand



Connectivity, system bandwidth, rise time, and probe location must be carefully considered when probing any target. In addition, the non-ideal probe exhibits parasitic effects that interact with the DUT and can pollute the measurement if not managed properly.

Engineers must commonly probe low and high frequency signals with high signal fidelity. Typical passive probes with high input impedance and capacitance provide good response at lower frequencies, but inappropriately load the circuit and distort signals at higher frequencies. 

Join Teledyne LeCroy for this webinar as we discuss: 

  • Selecting the right probing techniques to maximize the accuracy of your measurements
  • Probe specifications and their implications on the measured signal
  • Variety of probes and accessories available for measurement
  • Virtual probing software tools that allow the user to probe the signal when direct access is physically impossible
