Overview:
Today’s high-speed digital design engineers are faced with ever increasing data rates that create a multitude of challenges: interconnects become microwave transmission lines, reflections wreak havoc on timing margins and even the probes used to measure change the results. Where to begin? De-embedding is one of the most misused and misunderstood tools inside the signal integrity lab today. In this Webcast, we will cover the basics of de-embedding and embedding with a real time oscilloscope. Included in this are considerations of modeling a system and obtaining the models for real circuits.
