7/22/2020 – Pickering Live Online Webinar: The Importance of Using Programmable Resistors for Sensor Simulation in Test

We are excited about Pickering's upcoming webinar called "The Importance of Using Programmable Resistors for Sensor Simulation in Test" that will be held on Wednesday, July 22 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada) / 4:00 PM British Summer Time.

 

In this webinar, Pickering will help you to understand programmable resistors, their construction, why they are needed, resistor selection and look at some applications where sensor simulation is an integral part of the adopted test strategies to improve repeatability, reduce test times, and ultimately lower the cost of test.

 

A few of the takeaways are:

  • Discover what types of programmable resistor modules are commercially available
  • Understand the basic construction and how to select the correct modules
  • Look at some applications where sensor simulation is an integral part of the adopted test strategies
  • Gain insight from a company with 30+ years of modular signal switching and simulation experience in electronic test and verification.

6/16/2020 – NH Research Webinar: Accelerate Battery Test Automation with Enerchron®

Tue, Jun 16, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT


Battery testing is complex, challenging and time consuming. Today’s engineers are looking for ways to accelerate and manage the complexities of test. A considerable amount of time is spent on test development, data collection and post-processing, not to mention, having to repeat this cycle when errors inevitably occur. Using the right software tool can dramatically reduce total testing time (time to results), eliminate operator errors and increase engineering productivity.
Enerchron® is an advanced software solution with test creation, execution and reporting tools created for battery testing. Sophisticated, dynamic test sequences are created without requiring complex programming skills. By enabling the integration of modular power stages, third-party products and control stations, NHR creates comprehensive test environments that are unique to each application. Enerchron breaks the mold of traditional automated battery cycling through its unique variable-based test sequence editor and compatibility with third-party solutions and equipment. Battery cycling profiles can now be easily created, run and repurposed for any Unit Under Test (UUT) or test station.
Key Takeaways:
• Learn how Enerchron differs from traditional battery test software • Identify how to develop a robust test plan strategy
• Get new insights on how to simplify and accelerate your battery test approach
• Receive a tutorial on how to set up a sample test procedure and drive cycle sequence using variables

6/11/2020 – NoiseCom Sponsored Webinar: COM in NRZ and PAM4: Understanding How Crosstalk, Equalization, Noise, and Jitter Combine With Frequency Response

Signal Integrity Journal Webinar Series

Title:  COM in NRZ and PAM4: Understanding How Crosstalk, Equalization, Noise, and Jitter Combine With Frequency Response

Date:  June 11, 2020

Time:  8am PT/ 11am ET

Presented By: Ransom Stephens, Author, Technologist, and Physicist

Sponsored by:  Noisecom and Rohde & Schwarz

Abstract:

High-speed serial technology standards are adopting ever more complicated figures of merit for compliance testing. They’re meant to give designers the freedom to optimize network elements as best they can within the confines of transmitter-channel-receiver interoperability. Channel operating margin (COM) is the most complex. In this webinar, we dive into COM not only so that you can understand what it is, how it works, and its limitations, but so that you can see how the gears turn in high-speed serial systems polluted with jitter, noise, and crosstalk.

Who should attend:

Engineers who design, test, or implement HSS (high speed serial) technology at the physical layer. COM is used in IEEE802.3bj/bs/cd/ck (50/100/200/400 Gigabit Ethernet) but the concepts that go into COM are universal to all HSS technologies from 25 to 112 Gb/s: OIF-CEI, PCIe, USB, sATA, Inifiniband, FibreChannel, etc.

Presenter Bio:

Ransom Stephens, Ph.D., helps engineers advance to the highest data rates by teaching the concepts engineers need to design better systems, better serdes, and better ways to find problems and come up with solutions. Ransom started in basic research at labs in the US and Europe specializing in digging weak signals out of strong backgrounds. He brought those skills to high speed electronics in 1999 and invented new techniques for signal and noise analysis. Since 2005, when he started Ransom’s Notes, his seminars have helped thousands of EEs understand key nuances of their work. Ransom was named the 2017 Jim Williams ACE Contributor of the Year for content that advances engineering and design. He is also an accomplished book author: the novels The God Patent and The Sensory Deception both published by 47North, Amazon Publishing’s science fiction, fantasy, and horror imprint have each appeared on a variety of bestseller lists. His first full-length work of nonfiction popular science, The Left Brain Speaks the Right Brain Laughs, was published by Viva Editions in 2016. Ransom holds a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California.
