Overcoming Signal Integrity Challenges of 112G Connections

A challenge of high-frequency design is overcoming signal integrity issues, especially with 112G SerDes. For long-reach applications, signal distortion impacts clock recovery and the fidelity of the information being transferred. This white paper looks at how to handle these issues and ensure data is successfully transmitted with low BER.

Practical Tips for Accurate Bode Plot Measurements

To investigate the stability of a switched-mode power supply, a Bode plot created with an oscilloscope is ideal for checking the critical phase margin and gain margin values. The factors that determine how satisfactory the results from Bode plot measurements will be, need to taken into consideration as part of the preparation.
