Target Impedance Limitations and Rogue Wave Assessments on PDN Performance

By Steve Sandler

A common design technique for power distribution networks (PDN) is the determination of the peak distribution bus impedance that will assure that the voltage excursions on the power rail will be maintained within allowable limits, generally referred to as the target impedance. In theory, the allowable target impedance is determined by dividing the tolerable voltage excursion by the maximum change in load current. Discover more.


Streamlined Processes Enable Short Lead times for Gore® High Speed Data Cables for Commercial and Military Aircraft Applications

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) has recently upgraded its site manufacturing infrastructure in New Garden, PA, reducing product delivery time to OEMs and end users. GORE® Aerospace High Speed Data Cables for commercial and military aircraft applications are now available with short lead times.

Teledyne LeCroy’s WaveSurfer 3000z Oscilloscopes Add Features and Value

Teledyne LeCroy announced the WaveSurfer 3000z oscilloscopes, which expand the existing WaveSurfer 3000 bandwidth range above and below that of earlier models, while also bolstering functionality for power-electronics testing. In addition, the new models provide more processing power and memory.




High-Speed PAM Signal Generation and BER Measurements

By Anritsu

The next-generation 200 and 400-Gbits/s transmission methods defined by IEEE802.3bs and IEEE802.3cd increase the transmission capacity compared to the conventional NRZ method without increasing the symbol rate by implementing Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) transmission technology.

Best Design Practices for Systems with PDN Noise-Sensitive Circuits

Most of the power integrity focus is on high power devices, such as FPGAs and CPUs. Most power distribution networks (PDNs) also include sensitive circuits including LNAs, clocks, and PLLs, often even within the FPGAs. These sensitive circuits can be sensitive to microvolts of noise. The challenge is that over-designing the power supply adds unnecessary cost while under-designing the power supply results in suboptimal performance. In this webinar we’ll provide the essential information you need and allay your fears.
