Aditya Rao is a graduate student studying High Speed Design at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has been focused on learning all aspects of high speed engineering by looking into understanding and challenging common rules and design practices.
It’s easy to make a measurement in most instruments, but it’s sometimes hard to know what is real and what is an artifact. Gibbs Ringing is a common artifact in high-speed scope and TDR measurements that can lead you astray unless you understand how to avoid it. We reveal the secrets of avoiding this important artifact.
Few topics are as fundamental in signal integrity and create as much confusion as signal bandwidth. What exactly does bandwidth refer to and what features in the time domain influence bandwidth; rise time or slew rate?
