Knowing the quality of the scope’s measurement system is paramount when you need to have accurate measurement results.  While banner specs like bandwidth, sample rate, and memory depth provide a basis of comparison, these specifications alone don’t adequately describe oscilloscope measurement quality.   Figure 1: Keysight Infiniium S-Series… (Show more)

Eye diagrams are extremely helpful in testing the physical layer fidelity of clock or serial data, but many engineers don’t know: What they are Why they should use one How to easily set one up   They actually aren’t that complex when broken down. Eye diagrams can quickly give you insight into your signal, along with any jitter or anomalies… (Show more)

IEEE Standards for 400G optical Ethernet links have been in development for many months, and the specifications are finally stabilizing as of mid-2017. The result will be the first optical standards to employ PAM4 modulation. This requires a new set of measurements, with the TDECQ (Transmitter and Dispersion Eye Closure Quaternary) measurement… (Show more)

By now, you’ve probably heard about Keysight’s new 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes. We talked about them a lot during Scope Month, and you might’ve seen some of the blogger reviews from Hackaday, ElectroBOOM, and EEVblog.   The 1000 X-Series features ultra-low cost oscilloscopes from 50 to 100 MHz bandwidths. They have a starting price of $449 (USD)… (Show more)

Understanding the effects of crosstalk in high speed communication circuitry and pin pointing the root causes have been extremely hard for designers, until now. Keysight’s industry leading N8833A and N8833B software not only identifies the crosstalk but also allows the user to determine the sources. In addition, it can remove the effects of the… (Show more)

Written by Ailee Grumbine and Brad Doerr   The design-to-manufacturing (D2M) process typically involves sequential stages from design to manufacturing. Each stage requires data collection that is specified in an initial design of experiments (DOE) and aimed at providing confidence that the design can meet critical requirements. Effective data… (Show more)
