Measuring and Interpreting Impedance Data

Power integrity engineers have been learning to make VRM impedance measurements to compare to the design goal or “target impedance”. Once the measurement has been performed, it’s important to be able to interpret the data. Is the result good or bad? What do I need to do to improve it? How does the impedance measurement relate to step load response and control loop stability? This webinar addresses all of these topics, providing you with the ability to perform accurate measurements, analyze the results and relate the impedance to step load response and control loop stability. It's not too late to register, join us!
