4/16/2020 – Tabor Electronics Webinar: Advanced Microwave Topics for Quantum Physicists

Title: Advanced Microwave Topics for Quantum Physicists

Date: Thursday, April 16, 2020

Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

Register HERE

A quantum experiment is difficult. Many factors interfere with obtaining accurate results, including noise, interference, individual qubit behavior and the effects multiple qubits can have on each other. Controlling the qubit state, its entanglement and ensuring controlled and stable measurement requires the precise application of electromagnetic waves.

This seminar covers microwave control systems, which include methods of synthesis, pulse shaping and modulation techniques used in both semiconductor and photon based qubits. We will also cover analog signal generation techniques common in many systems today, plus direct to microwave digital signal generation and measurement based on new DAC and ADC technology.

Learning Outcomes:
- Understanding RF and Microwave signal concepts.
- Trade-offs in frequency synthesis technique.
- What types of modulation techniques to use for the best measurement stability
- Latest advances in real time feedback and control

Who Should Attend:
Experimental Quantum Physicists who are curious to learn more about various RF/Microwave techniques - and how they could be used not only to enhance their current results, but also provide them with key knowledge that may help in defining the architecture for next generation of quantum systems.

4/15/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: High-Resolution Oscilloscope Design Webinar Series: Part Two

Date: Wed, April 15, 2020
Time:11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern
There has been an explosion in the market of high definition oscilloscopes at 1 GHz or more bandwidth with claims of 10-bit, 12-bit or even (remarkably!) 16-bit resolution. Oscilloscope manufacturers use a variety of design approaches to increase resolution, some of which impose other performance tradeoffs.

You might be wondering:

  • What can be believed?
  • How can you tell if you are getting what is advertised?
  • What is the difference between high definition and high resolution?
Join Ken Johnson for this two-part webinar series to gain a better understanding of various manufacturer’s claims.

Part 2 provides an overview of various high definition/resolution oscilloscope design approaches and implementations with real-world comparisons of Teledyne LeCroy, Keysight, Rohde & Schwarz and Tektronix oscilloscopes and correlation of performance limitations with various design approaches.

4/1/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Advanced TDR Concepts

Date: Wed, April 1, 2020
Time: 11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern
A TDR can measure much more than just the impedance profile of a transmission line. In this webinar, Dr. Eric Bogatin shows how to use a TDR to measure the dielectric constant of a laminate, the excess capacitance or inductance of a discontinuity, the return loss of an interconnect with a matched termination, the resonant frequencies of structures and the impedance uniformity of a flex circuit or interconnect with high series resistance.

When your needs require higher bandwidth, more ports, cross talk, insertion and return loss measurements, he’ll introduce you to a more advanced instrument to meet your most demanding needs.

This is the final webinar in our six-part series on Mastering the TDR. To view previous webinars in the series please click below:

3/25/2020- Teledyne LeCroy: PCI Express Electrical Test Webinar – from 8 Gb/s to 32 Gb/s and beyond

Date: Wed, March 25, 2020
Time: 11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern

 

The PCI Express ecosystem is evolving in multiple directions in 2020. The established PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 technology is deploying in new form factors, with new connector and electrical test requirements. Official PCIe 4.0 compliance testing at 16 Gb/s began in 2019, with complex calibration routines and advanced Link Equalization requirements. New devices with 32 Gb/s PCIe 5.0 capabilities are now in labs for characterization, while the PCIe 6.0 specification is already in active development.

Join Teledyne LeCroy for this free webinar to gain a deeper understanding of the electrical specifications and validation requirements, and how to test these new technologies with the most complete PCIe electrical test solutions available.

3/4/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Principles of De-embedding

Date: Wed, Mar 4, 2020
Time:
 11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern
This is the fifth webinar in our six-part High Speed Interconnect Characterization webinar series.

A fixture is commonly used as a geometry transformer between the coax connection of the instrument and the Device Under Test (DUT). If we want the S-parameters of just the DUT and not the DUT + fixture, we have to “de-embed” the DUT from the composite measurement.

In this webinar, we will introduce the principles behind de-embedding and how it can be dramatically simplified using best measurement practices. It is a powerful technique which should be in everyone’s tool box.

2/12/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Fundamentals of Power Integrity

Date: Wed, February 12, 2020
Time: 11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern

Power Integrity concerns maintaining the quality of power from generation to consumption. High power integrity means noise levels that are within tolerance. In this webinar we will look at defining what power integrity is and why it matters.

Dr. Patrick Connally will review the types of power distribution network noise which include: 1) Self aggression noise, 2) Pollution of the board/package interconnects and 3) Mutual aggressors.

We will conclude with best measurement practices with real world examples.
