Characterize and Correct for Cable, Switch and Test Fixture Loss Using Just a High-Bandwidth Oscilloscope
Probes, cables, switches and test fixtures have inherent loss and variation, especially when making signal integrity measurements with a high-bandwidth oscilloscope. The loss and variation can be substantial and should be corrected out in order to make the most accurate measurement.
Agilent's PrecisionProbe (available for Agilent's Infiniium high performance, real-time oscilloscopes) solves these measurement challenges by allowing you to quickly characterize and correct for these inherent losses and variations, without the need for additional equipment such as a VNA or TDR.
This webcast will teach a new methodology for characterizing test setups, and show ways that users can quickly correct for loss and variation in order to make the most accurate signal integrity measurements using a high-performance real-time oscilloscope.
Who should view this webcast:
Engineers and technicians in the high-technology industry who use high-bandwidth, real-time oscilloscopes and wish to make their most accurate measurements.
