10:30AM – 12:00PM
What Every Oscilloscope User Needs to Know About Transmission Lines
In this session, Eric will introduce you to the five simple, yet essential principles of signal integrity which we will apply to understanding how to interpret scope measurements from DC to > 1 GHz bandwidth. Attendees will gain a practical understanding of transmission lines and why this is so important in any scope measurement.
12:00PM – 12:30PM

Secrets to Successful Power Rail Measurements
Power rail measurements offer a few unique challenges that typical signal measurements do not. These arise from the low level voltages on top of large DC levels, the low impedance source, the high bandwidth and the potential of rf pick up from non-coaxial probes. We will show how accurate, high bandwidth measurements of power rail voltages are sensitive to artifacts and how to overcome them so you can get a more accurate and realistic measure of your power rails.
2:00PM – 3:30PM
Real Time Spectral Analysis of Power Rail Noise
While the real world is the time domain, sometimes we can gain insight about the origin of problems by looking in the frequency domain. The time domain and frequency domain properties of power rail noise are a little different than for digital signals. For some types of components, such as analog parts, mixed signal or clock generation, very low levels of power rail noise can have a big impact on performance. Sometimes the best way of finding these noise sources is by frequency domain analysis. We will discuss best measurement practices using real-time oscilloscopes to analyze power rail noise in the time and frequency domains to provide insight into the root cause of the problems.
