Overview:
Jitter is a very important topic in signal
integrity for high speed serial data links. The jitter performance of clock
signals used in generating the serial data signal is critical to the overall
performance of these signals. Phase noise is the most sensitive and accurate
measurement of the performance of precision clocks.

This session will
cover the theory and practice for making phase noise measurements on clock
signals as well as the relationship between phase noise and total jitter, random
jitter and deterministic jitter. Measurements on a typical clock signal will be
presented.

What you will learn:

  • Jitter fundamentals and methods of measuring jitter
  • Theory and practice for making phase noise measurements on clock signals
  • The relationship between phase noise and total jitter, random jitter and
    deterministic jitter
