Fundamentals of Signal Integrity Tutorial:
Don’t Be Confused by Ground

Every instrument and every circuit has ground associated with it, yet they are often not the same and not even related. The secret to not being confused by grounding problems is to understand the three different types of ground and why they are important. When the device under test ground is different from your scope ground, measurement artifacts will often arise. This insight will allow you to identify ground problems and how to avoid or fix them.

Topics to be covered in this webinar:

  • The three types of ground
  • The signature of problems when instrument and circuit ground are different
  • The right way of measuring your DUT when its ground is different from your scope ground
  • Getting the most out of your scope probes to avoid ground problems
  • Measuring the impact of the differences in grounds between instruments

Who should attend? Hardware engineers, test engineers, design engineers and PCB designers.

What attendees will learn? You will learn how to identify the types of grounds in your product and how to avoid common measurement artifacts
