TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry)

The workhorse instrument used to characterize all PCB traces is the Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR). But its measurements are often mis-interpreted because the impedance properties of transmission lines are confusing.

Join Eric Bogatin and Teledyne LeCroy for this webinar that will show you the right way to think about signals on transmission lines and how to interpret TDR results. Using live measurements, we’ll look at some cool examples of the properties of real circuit board traces.

Topics to be covered in this webinar:

  • What is characteristic and instantaneous impedance?
  • How a TDR measures instantaneous impedance
  • How to read the characteristic impedance off the front screen of a TDR
  • How to interpret discontinuities
  • The limitations to a single channel TDR

Who should attend? Any engineer who uses a TDR or uses TDR measurements.

What attendees will learn? How to get the most value from TDR measurements to analyze your interconnects.

Presenter: Dr. Eric Bogatin, Teledyne LeCroy Fellow
