Teledyne LeCroy Webinar – Taking the TDR for a Spin: Interpreting Impedance Profiles

Date: Wednesday, August 7th
Time: 11:00 AM Pacific | 2:00 PM Eastern


Presenter: Eric Bogatin, Dean of the Signal Integrity Academy



The TDR measures instantaneous impedance. When the interconnect is uniform, we can interpret the instantaneous impedance as a characteristic impedance. When it is not uniform, the instantaneous impedance depends on the rise time of the TDR. We can still use the impedance at a rise time as a figure of merit.

In this webinar, you will learn how to interpret a TDR’s measured instantaneous impedance profile in terms of the interconnect’s characteristic impedance and time delay, and the location of impedance discontinuities. We’ll look at a variety of cables and PCB interconnect structures.
