Analog/Digital Design and Debug

When you’re innovating to a schedule, there’s no time to track down a logic analyzer or protocol analyzer to find elusive mixed-signal problems. Luckily, new highly-integrated instruments are available and are designed to give you a coherent view into the analog and digital signals, serial protocols, and RF signals that make up today’s complex embedded systems.

Title
XYZs of Signal Generators

This primer explains the basics of signal generators, including the types of generators, their applications and their contribution to a complete test and measurement solution.

Identifying Setup and Hold Violations with a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

Mixed signal oscilloscopes (MSOs) are able to capture both analog and digital representations of signals, making them well-suited for identifying problems with setup and hold times.  Learn how to use the digital capture functions of an MSO, as well as the special setup and hold triggering feature found on most Tektronix MSOs.

Troubleshooting Ethernet Problems with your Oscilloscope

Learn the basics of the 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet physical layers to help you troubleshoot bus problems or related system issues.  Learn how to set up and interpret the results when using automated decoding, triggering, and search on an oscilloscope equipped with Ethernet analysis capability.

How to Troubleshoot System Problems Using an Oscilloscope with I2C and SPI Decoding

Learn about the physical layers of the most common interchip buses - I2C and SPI - to enable you to troubleshoot bus problems or system issues.  Learn how to set up and interpret the results when you use automated decoding, triggering, and search on an oscilloscope equipped with I2C and SPI bus analysis capability.

Troubleshooting USB 2.0 Problems with Your Oscilloscope

Learn the basics of the USB 2.0 physical layer to troubleshoot bus problems or system issues.  Learn how to set up and interpret the results when using automated decoding, triggering, and search on an oscilloscope equipped with USB 2.0 bus analysis capability.

Troubleshooting Multiple-bus Systems Using FlexChannel Input Channels Tech Brief

Troubleshooting embedded systems often demands more than the 2 or 4 measurement channels available on most oscilloscopes.  Using a mixed signal oscilloscope and clever application of digital channels can provide much broader system visibility.  This Tech Brief specifically describes the use of FlexChannelTM inputs available on the 5 Series MSO to address these challenges.

Debugging CAN, LIN and FlexRay Automotive Buses with an Oscilloscope

Explains the physical layer basics of CAN, LIN, and FlexRay serial buses to troubleshoot bus problems or system issues.  Learn how to use automated decoding, triggering, and search on an oscilloscope equipped with automotive bus analysis capability.

Characterizing and Troubleshooting Jitter with Your Oscilloscope

Gives examples of jitter analysis, from basic analysis to more advanced jitter decomposition techniques using the 5 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope on unmodulated clocks, spread spectrum clocks, and serial data.

Verifying Power Supply Sequencing with an 8-Channel Oscilloscope

You’ll learn the basics of checking the power-on and power-off sequence of an AC-DC power supply, how to look at a bulk supply and various point of load regulators, and how an oscilloscope with more than 4 channels can expedite the process.

Debugging Serial Buses in Embedded System Designs

Learn the basics of the hardware protocols of the most common serial buses. Find out how to use the protocol trigger, decode and search capabilities of oscilloscopes to solve serial bus integration and debug challenges.
