Synchronous Time and Frequency Domain Analysis of Embedded Systems
Embedded systems increasingly employ a combination of low speed serial, analog voltages and RF communications which are tightly synchronized in time. This session will discuss the background of performing time and frequency domain analysis on these systems with example measurements on a digitally controlled RF transmitter.
- The challenges of debugging embedded systems
- Frequency domain analysis and FFT basics
- Time gating, Dynamic range and Triggering considerations
- PLL locking measurement example
