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

Analog Signals Join Digital Patterns In Serial Data

With fast digital-to-analog converters and faster sample clock capabilities, a new generation of AWGs is evolving as a way to generate waveforms for high-speed serial bus protocols such as SATA 2 and PCI-Express.

Automation Answers Compliance Challenge

Interoperability and compliance concerns are commanding an ever-larger share of the serial system designer's attention.

Measurement Solutions for Disk Drive Design

This application note illustrates a number of measurement techniques relevant to six general areas of disk drive design. It provides a summary of modern instrumentation and techniques available for probing, capturing, and analyzing electronic signals that are found in disk drive systems.


Tips for Fast+ Efficient Debug of Serial Buses Webinar

Many embedded systems today utilize serial buses like I2C, SPI and USB for chip to chip communications and peripheral control. In this webinar, you'll learn how to debug these systems quickly with automated decode, trigger and search on common serial bus topologies. This approach will save hours of debugging time by automating the serial decoding process. Learn how to capture common serial bus traffic on an oscilloscope and view in a decoded format, helpful steps showing how to quickly debug signaling and electrical issues found in these serial buses, and more. The speaker Chris Loberg is a Senior Marketing Manager at Tektronix

Beyond Receiver Interoperability Testing Webinar

This 45 minute, live webinar will focus on the latest tools and techniques for properly performing jitter tolerance and stressed receiver sensitivity testing - including characterization and margin testing of next generation receivers. .

Physical Layer Validation of Storage Systems

With many advances in storage technology, it is even more critical to stay connected with the updated transfer methodologies. In this webinar you'll learn about the most recent Compliance Test Specification revisions by the SATA I/O and Serial Attached SCSI organizations. See how these latest tests are performed on Tektronix instrumentation using automated compliance software.

High Performance Mixed Signal Validation and Debug Webinar

Modern embedded and computing systems have become progressively more powerful by incorporating high-speed buses with mixed analog and digital subsystems.

How Stressing a Receiver Removes Stress from a Designer Webinar

Inducing the stress in your design can help you find it's hidden weaknesses. Learn the easy way to apply stress by understanding the hard way.

High Speed Serial Data Receiver Testing Webinar

This tutorial discusses the challenges in generating signals with increasing speeds for the latest serial standards and that thoroughly test any receiver with real world or "worst case" conditions. You will also learn how Direct Synthesis techniques enable a much more simplified method for many serial data test requirements.

Advantages of Stress Testing Receivers with Synthesized Waveforms Webinar

Learn the best way to perform stress receiver tolerance tests with signal generation. By using an Arbitrary Waveform Generator, you gain the advantages of flexibility, ease of use, increased control, faster testing, and insightful diagnostics.

Acting on Impulse: Equalization and Emphasis Webinar

Learn how equalization can turn the tables on signal path effects.

Overcoming Challenges in S-Parameter Measurements

In this webinar we will describe and demonstrate the latest tools available to perform serial data S-parameter measurements for more efficient signal integrity analysis. This versatile approach provides repeatable, accurate, cost-effective results.
