Probing and influence probes can have on a circuit

Which probe is better to use in my application? Is my probe having any impact on my measurement? How is my signal affected by the probe? What can I do when I do not have access to the test point? During this seminar we will answer these questions and many others about probes, with special attention to high-voltage and high-speed signals

Automotive Ethernet: Physical Layer, Debugging and Compliance Test

In modern automobiles more and more devices are inter-connected and therefore there is the need for a communication standard that supports this requirement.
Ethernet is designed for network communication, so it makes sense to use an adapted version, Automotive Ethernet, to establish a reliable and safe connection between the various electronic devices inside the car.
However, the new Automotive Ethernet physical layer measurements are more challenging than those in other automotive busses since there is the need to measure bi-directional links that use fast data rates based on PAM3 modulation.
In this webinar we will provide a detailed overview of the Automotive Ethernet compliance test solution and make live measurements using an oscilloscope and a Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR).

Practical Examples of using an Arbitrary Waveform Generator combined with a DSO

The increasing complexity of the stimulus signals used in current and future electronic applications requires the use of different types of generators and oscilloscopes with advanced trigger and analysis capabilities.
The use of an arbitrary waveform/pattern generator combined with a high resolution oscilloscope on its own measuring bench is the perfect solution for all applications.

During the webinar, a new class of analog/digital multi-channels arbitrary waveform/pattern generators with high vertical 12 bit resolution, high output voltage (12Vpp on 50 Ohm) and unmatched waveform memory depth per channel (up to 1 GPts @Ch) will be used, combined with Teledyne LeCroy’s most advanced High-Definition Digital Oscilloscopes. Practical examples of NRZ and PAM3 signal generation and analysis, as well as single-shot pulse capture and regeneration using the Arbitrary Waveform Generator will be shown and discussed.

Learn how to use today’s arbitrary waveform generators and advanced high-definition oscilloscopes to improve testing and save you time in the lab

Fundamentals of Arbitrary Waveform Generators

During the presentation we will cover the differences between a function generator (FG) and an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG), and why the arbitrary waveform generator is so important in a stimulus-response measurements system. We also review fundamental characteristics of ARB such as vertical resolution, output voltage and channel count. In this webinar, we introduce the value with live examples of capturing a signal using an oscilloscope and downloading the waveform into the AWG in order to reproduce the signal. We will also use dedicated features available on the Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes to create complex waveforms.

Noise impairments on Serial Data links\
The increasing rate in modern transmission systems requires an accurate characterization of jitter, noise, crosstalk and their main subcomponents.The need to ensure links with the lowest bit error rate (BER) requires the ability to design electronic circuits with the lowest content of jitter and noise. Knowing how to wisely reduce the contributions of jitter and noise components, allows engineers to realize new projects in a safe and effective way.Special consideration will be described on how use the equalization both at the transmitter as well as at the receiver and how to neutralize the degradation of the signal caused by the channel.

Debugging PCI Express Link Training and Protocol Problems

PCI Express has used a layered architecture since its inception, which allows a separation of the physical interconnect from the higher layer protocols.
When debugging PCI Express problems, it is important to be able to identify which layer is at fault to be able to find the root cause. PCI Express 4.0 and 5.0 support several new features in addition to the 16 and 32GT/s data rate support, including Lane Margining and Scaled Flow Control. This presents new challenges for developers during bring up and validation.

Getting to the Source: Integrated Circuits (ICs) and Component EMC Testing

Failures in EMC testing often result in treating the symptoms of the issue rather than attacking the source. If we know the source of the issue rather than chase the symptoms, we will save time, cost, and frustrations. In this discussion, we will attack EMC testing from a component standpoint so that when issues arise, we can pinpoint the solution, saving time, cost, and frustrations.
