As data rates for high-speed Digital serial links has increased, the ability to portray waveforms at the location engineers desire is impeded because of high frequency artifacts due to probing, cabling, or fixturing. New hardware and software technology on real time oscilloscopes solves this problem by incorporating models of these system elements. This presentation will show various engineering use cases and before and after results of waveform transformation.

Duration: One hour
