Triggering Read and Write Cycles of DDR3 Memories

Sponsored Rohde & Schwarz
When analyzing the signal integrity performance of DDR interfaces, separating read and write cycles has been a challenging task. Comprehensive trigger capabilities are required especially when attempting to recreate the eye diagram in realtime. Download the white paper to learn more.

Understanding SNDR and All that Goes Into It

In this seminar, we’ll use the Signal to noise and dispersion ratio measurement as a lab to understand not only SNDR, but the important quantities that go into it and many other measurements: pulse response and how it relates to features of interconnects like transfer functions and impulse response as well as ISI (inter-symbol interference); waveform fitting, fit deviations, and signal distortion; and measurement of the steady state voltage and pulse peak. In the process, we’ll see exactly how SNDR compares electrical signal strength to the combination of random noise and harmonic distortion.
