Verifying Additive Phase Noise and Jitter Attenuation of PLLs in High-Speed Digital Designs

Sponsored By Rohde & Schwarz USA Inc.

Increasing data rates in high-speed digital designs and wireless communications require SerDes PLLs and clock synthesizers with low additive phase noise and high jitter attenuation. Phase noise analyzers are the instruments of choice for these tests. To stimulate the PLL, an additional signal source with ultra-low phase noise is required. Downlaod the app note today.

Power Integrity: Challenges, Best Practices, and Test Solutions for Sensitive Electronic Designs

This webinar will discuss power integrity issues, root causes, and countermeasures in sensitive electronic designs. Attendees will learn the impact of noise, jitter, impedance, and examples to detect those sources of power integrity failures. Another thing that will be discussed are methods to reduce respectively compensate those sources and demonstrate oscilloscope and vector network analyzer solutions that engineers benefit from for their design verification. Register now to join us on November 20th for this informative presentation.
