Tracking Satellites with the RSA306

Tektronix Experts's blog picture

Last October, we ran a post about how David Haworth, a senior applications engineer for Tektronix, used an MDO4000 oscilloscope to capture RF emissions from the sun. As you may recall, in addition to his work at Tektronix, David is an amateur radio astronomer who often puts RF test equipment to work capturing signals from out this world.

Tektronix and Cadence team up to enable 200Gb/sec data transfer speeds using DDR4 & LPDDR4 PHY IP

Tektronix Experts's blog picture

High speed memory design is challenging. With faster read/write speeds and difficulty accessing components, key to a good DDR4 PHY is careful design across the SoC, package, board, and system challenges. To do it right, it helps to look to Tektronix and partners like Nexus Technologies, SK Hynix, TSMC and Cadence for IP, Simulation and Validation Test.

Measuring Switching Loss the Easy Way

Tektronix Experts's blog picture

Whether you’re designing AC-DC or DC-DC power supplies from scratch or you’re digging into an existing design, you’re probably looking to minimize switching loss. The losses in MOSFETs and IGBTs during transitions and conduction have a significant impact on power supply efficiency.  Understanding any variation between the expected power dissipation, based on component specifications, and actual performance is critical to ensuring the best efficiency in a design.

Bring it all together with the Worldwide Spectrum Allocations poster – and the MDO4000

Tektronix Experts's blog picture

By Varun Merchant

The Worldwide Spectrum Allocations poster arrived in the mail last week – it offers a beautiful visual of the FCC allocated spectral bands all in one place – and is now pinned to the cube wall that overlooks my MDO4000B mixed domain oscilloscope.
