Using TDR Technology to Debug and Solve Signal Integrity Impairments Webinar

Using TDR Technology to Debug and Solve Signal Integrity Impairments

Join Teledyne LeCroy to learn how to measure and analyze impedance on cables, connectors and PCBs using TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) instruments.

Topics to be included:

  • TDR Basics
  • Rise Time of the TDR-Pulse vs Resolution
  • Why we use filtered impedance curves
  • How to convert the impedance plot into distance
  • What additional information provides the frequency range?
  • How to probe PCBs using TDR probes

Who should attend? Engineers dealing with high-speed data signals who want to identify and evaluate the effect of impedance changes in cables, connectors and printed circuit boards.

What attendees will learn? To learn how to measure and analyze impedance on cables, connectors and PCBs using TDR.

Presenter: Thomas Stueber, Group Leader Applications, Teledyne LeCroy
