The morning session will focus on the reasons behind the importance of high bandwidth high resolution and it will discuss its applications. This seminar provides an overview of the various high resolution design approaches, with examples of their impact on oscilloscope performance. Including how 12-bit oscilloscope ADC resolution applied to end user examples such as motor drives, power measurements, medical applications, and scientific research.
You will learn about: High vertical resolution, quantization levels, 8-bit and 12-bit examples, 8-channel scopes, ADC acquisition technology, oscilloscope noise floors, motor drive applications, 3-phase power measurement, dynamic motor behavior, start-up, load, and overload testing, ground fault circuit interrupter testing, scientific experiments, medical applications including ultrasound and EKG, using Q-scape displays, making accurate vertical and timing parametric measurements.
During the afternoon session, we will look more closely at the value of multi-port and mixed mode TDR and impedance measurements: the best measurement practices and how to analyze the results. A Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) displays the instantaneous single-ended or differential impedance profiles of an interconnect and the location of discontinuities. While this is valuable information, there is additional information we can extract by expanding to multiple ports and looking at not just the differential impedance, but also the common impedance and even the location of cross talk and mode conversion.
