EDI CON USA: Product Wrap Up

By Pat Hindle and Gary Lerude

Couldn’t make it to California? Well, here’s a review of some of the products that were on display on the EDI CON USA show floor at the Santa Clara Convention Center October 17-18. In addition to two full days of technical sessions and programming, the event also included a celebration of innovation in the EDI CON EXPO hall, complete with show-floor networking opportunities and speed training.


Tektronix Redefines the Arbitrary/Function Generator

Tektronix, Inc. introduces the AFG31000 series. A completely new design, the AFG31000 features many key firsts including the largest touchscreen and new user interface that will delight engineers and researchers who need to generate complex test cases for debugging, troubleshooting, characterizing and validating devices under test.

Upcoming Webinars


Analysis and Verification of DDR3/DDR4 Interfaces

DDR3/4 DRAM Memory is one of the last remaining parallel interfaces in current industry standards. It is expected to stay parallel (as the "dinosaur" of interface definitions) for the next generation of memory. Design and especially verification and debugging of the interface is a difficult task due to several specialties of DDR signaling, which will be covered in this webinar.

Noisecom, R&S USA, Signal Microwave

PAM4 Jitter, Noise, and BER Analysis

In this seminar techniques for analyzing the performance of PAM4 transmitters and receivers will be discussed. After a brief review of the PAM4 scheme, we dive into jitter and noise analysis of three eye diagram PAM4 signals including the key transmitter diagnostic and compliance tests. We then turn to receiver tolerance testing for both diagnostics including techniques for generating stressed PAM4 signals and measuring both the symbol and bit error ratios.
