Debugging Serial Buses in Embedded System Designs

Find out how the protocol trigger, decode and search capabilities of the popular MSO and DPO Series oscilloscopes solve serial bus integration and debug challenges of many buses such as I2C, SPI , USB, RS-232/422/485/UART, CAN, LIN, FlexRay, Ethernet, and I2S/LJ/RJ/TDM.

The Basics of Serial Data Compliance and Validation Measurements

This primer is designed to help you understand the common aspects of serial data transmission and to explain the analog and digital measurement requirements that apply to these emerging serial technologies

Understanding and Characterizing Timing Jitter Primer

Timing jitter is the unwelcome companion of all electrical systems that use voltage transitions to represent timing information. This paper focuses primarily on jitter in electrical systems.

Physical Layer Compliance Testing for 100BASE-TX

This application note describes various physical layer tests including amplitude domain, return loss, jitter and duty cycle-distortion and compliance testing using TDSET3 software.

DesignCon 2015 Paper – Hybrid Modeled Measured Characterization of a 320 Gbit/s Backplane System

This paper explores a case study of a multilane Ethernet backplane 320 Gbit/s system that is difficult to fully measure and deembed, implements a hybrid method of modeling, deembedding, and measurement, explores improvements to the metrology and independent verification of results, and discusses the methodology both at 28Gb/s and 10Gb/s.
