Keysight is pleased to announce its complimentary Power Integrity Measurements Seminar Series. Suitable for analogue & digital hardware design/validation engineers, signal integrity engineers, quality engineers, engineering & project managers and dedicated power engineers, the seminars will take place in three locations across the United Kingdom, Finland and Sweden.
The seminars will discuss how to debug and test PDNs (Power Distribution Networks) with more precision, accuracy and confidence and more easily isolate root cause of PDN noise, as well as how to make high sensitivity current measurements, view and analyse small-current signals and calculate the total power consumed by battery devices in various operational states.
Also covered will be tools and techniques for making power integrity measurements such as ripple, noise, spikes, compression, static/dynamic load response and supply induced signal noise and signal jitter. Included is a discussion of the effects of oscilloscope noise, probe noise, probe design considerations and attenuation ratio, offset range, input range, connection technique and measuring supply/signal crosstalk.
Improvements in power supply delivery can have the largest impact on reducing jitter and noise. These improvements are relatively easy to achieve, if you understand the root cause. Keysight's new Power Rail Probes have been designed in response to this and are low noise, large offset range oscilloscope probes designed specifically for these challenges. They enable users to measure small signals riding on top of DC supplies. This, combined with the 10 bit, 40Gs/s ADC scope architecture provides a high resolution, low noise, low jitter unique solution.
The Winnersh, UK, Kista, Sweden, and Espoo, Finland seminars are scheduled, respectively, for Tuesday 26th January, Tuesday 2nd February and Thursday 4th February, all 2016. Each event will run from 9.00am until 1.00pm, beginning with coffee & registration and finishing after lunch.
