Modern integrated circuits contain billions of transistors that require complex power distribution systems. This power distribution complexity combined with inexpensive switch-mode power supplies creates several sources of noise found on the power and ground planes of a PC circuit board. This interference is difficult to model using software and contributes to jitter timing problems within the IC. The Noisecom JV9000A is designed to generate random and deterministic noise on the power and ground planes to emulate this behavior. The webinar illustrates how the JV9000A can be used to generate these effects in real systems.
A noise source that produces white noise is essentially an inexpensive broadband signal generator with an extremely flat (constant) power density output versus frequency. Noise sources are almost insensitive to temperature and supply voltage variations. Noise sources are therefore used for Built-in Testing (BIT), Fault Isolation Testing (FIT), and calibration in communication and radar warning systems to ensure the reliability and performance of the link. The webinar will be about the discussion of noise relevant parameters and applications.
Serial data systems play an increasingly important role whenever volumes of data are processed or transported. Jitter is a key concern for engineers developing high speed components such as transmitters, receivers and data channels. Serial high speed communication systems need to operate within very tight margins; with data provided extremely fast and with an exceptionally low probability of errors.
Data transmission is often conducted under very difficult circumstances; weak signals that transport high data rates within an unfavorable noise environment have to be recognized by receivers. Furthermore, data streams have to be transmitted reliably and with low BER. Designers, developers and system engineers have to take less-than-ideal circumstances in consideration when they design their circuits or monitor their system.
Learn how noise is created, the different types and how to control it. Bob will show how to define your noise requirements so you can identify the specific form factor, including diodes, modules and instruments that provide the best solution for your application.
