10/27/2020 – NH Research Webinar: AC Load Testing Fundamentals

AC Load Testing Fundamentals Free Webinar:

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020 at 2 – 3 p.m. EDT (USA)

Register Here

 

 

 

This webinar will review the fundamentals of ac loading for testing applications across residential, commercial, electric vehicles, aerospace, and military markets. We’ll dive into key features and functions of both traditional and modern ac loading conditions and their many applications across these industries. The ability for ac loads to emulate complex load profiles to include harmonics and sub-cycle transients is important for testing the device and/or the grid to meet modern day requirements.
Learn about the most effective test approaches and test solutions to ensure accuracy, product performance, safety, and reduced time to market. Example applications include testing the grid, inverters, lock rotor current, V2G, EVSE, avionics, UPS, switch and fuses, and more.

Key Technical Concepts:

  • Regenerative power
  • AC load 4 quadrant operation
  • True power factor shift
  • Linear, non-linear, inductive and capacitive loading
  • Testing in various emulation modes: CC, CR, CP, SC
  • How to create complex load profiles
  • Harmonics and sub-cycle transients

Presenter: Ben Jackson – Senior Applications Engineer at NH Research
Over 10 years of electrical engineering experience across a wide range of industrial applications. Ben’s expertise is especially focused on e-mobility markets including automotive and aerospace as well as renewable energy systems across the microgrid. In his current role, Ben provides consultation for designing hardware and software test solutions for both AC and DC applications.

10/14/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Don’t Let Ground Bounce Ruin Your Day

Date: Wed, October 14, 2020
Time: 11AM Pacific | 2PM Eastern

Register Here

Ground bounce is a common problem in packages, connectors and circuit boards. And it gets worse with shorter rise times. This insidious problem can cause enough cross talk to break almost any product.

In this webinar, we will look at the principles behind the root cause of ground bounce, how we can measure the ground bounce in your system, and based on the root cause, how we can design ground bounce out of your next product.

Presenter: Dr. Eric Bogatin, Signal Integrity Evangelis, Teledyne LeCroy

10/07/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: EMC / ESD Pulse Measurements Using Oscilloscopes

Date: Wed, Oct. 7, 2020
Time: 11:00 AM Pacific | 2:00 PM Eastern

Register Here

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 aspect s 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:

  • EMC Measurement Categories and Requirements
  • Conducted Immunity Testing Requirements and Pulse Measurement Definitions
  • ESD Threshold Selection
  • Level-After-Pulse, Time-To-Value, and Parameter Limiters
  • ESD Verification and Test Setup
  • ISO10605:2008 Consecutive Parameter Trending
  • Sample Rate and Dynamic Range Impact on ESD Pulse Measurements
  • Much more!

Presenter: Mike Hertz, Teledyne LeCroy Sr. Field Applications Engineer

10/06/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Overview of DisplayPort 2.0 Physical Layer and Link Layer Protocols

Date: Tue, October 6, 2020
Time: 11AM Pacific | 2PM Eastern

Register Here

Join Teledyne LeCroy for this free webinar for an overview of the DisplayPort 2.0 Physical Layer and Link Layer protocols

The physical layer (PHY) segment of this webinar will cover best known methods for early DP 2.0 PHY Source and Sink testing. While the PHY Compliance Test Specification (CTS) is still under development, PHY testing is largely based on the USB4 and Thunderbolt test methodologies. The PHY segment will ‘connect the dots’ between these test specifications and give guidance on early DisplayPort 2.0 PHY testing.

The Link Layer protocol segment will cover the new protocol elements introduced in the DisplayPort 2.0 specification and how they are structured and represented in a protocol analyzer test instrument.

Presenters:
Mike Engbretson, Teledyne LeCroy Product Manager High Speed Oscilloscopes
Neal Kendall, Teledyne LeCroy QuantumData Video Analyzer Marketing Manager
