The more successful a gate driver is in reducing power-up and power-down times, the bigger the headache for accurate measurements. Both choosing the right probe and optimizing the probing technique are significant factors in improving measurement accuracy. This white paper provides guidelines.
Multi-tone testing has many benefits. While the multi-tone methodology was initially implemented to increase the speed of immunity testing, it has been found that this method also improves equipment efficiency, offers greater flexibility to truly test the equipment (EUT) under real world threat conditions, and can be fully compliant to standards.
VNAs make measurements in the frequency domain and can be used to supplant the information that native time domain instruments, like fast oscilloscopes, Signal Quality Analyzers (BERTs) and Time Domain Reflectometers/Transmission instruments (TDR/TDT’s) already provide.
