Webinar: Don’t Let Ground Bounce Ruin your Day

Date: Wed, June 13, 2018
Time: 2:00PM Eastern
Duration: 60 Minutes

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.

Webinar: Secrets of Oscilloscope Probing Of Signals and Power Rails, Revealed

Probes are the interface between the oscilloscope and your device under test. They can sometimes degrade your system’s signals. Understanding what the probe-cable-scope is doing will help you avoid some common artifacts, and select the right probe for your application.

Join us for this webinar where Eric will introduce a general approach of understanding the DUT, the probe, the cable and the oscilloscope so you can routinely take more reliable measurements. We will address many of the common questions engineers have, such as:

  • Not sure what is real and what is an artifact in your scope measurements?
  • When is it a good idea to use a 10x probe? And how to they really work, anyway?
  • Why is tip inductance an issue and when do I need to worry about it?
  • How does the source impedance of the DUT influence what I measure and how could I measure it anyway?
  • How do I know if I am seeing a real signal or rf pick up?
  • When do I use 50 Ohm scope termination and when can I get away with 1 M input?
  • What if my signal bandwidth is higher than 500 MHz? How do I measure the signal without loading down the DUT circuit?
  • What probing approach should I use for signals in the 1 GHz to 8 GHz range?

Webinar: Take Advantage of Real Time Spectral Measurements to Analyze Your Signals and Power Rails

We are used to thinking about scopes measuring signals in the time domain. Sometimes, by transforming these signals into the frequency domain, we can get to the right answer faster and extract the important figures of merit of the signal. Looking in the frequency domain can help us find the root cause of a problem.

This webinar will introduce a few important principles to help you get the most out of your time and frequency domain measurements and analysis of signals. We’ll apply these techniques to look at high bandwidth signals, noise sources, power rails and near field rf pick up.Not sure what is real and what is an artifact in your scope measurements?
