Understanding and Characterizing Timing Jitter Primer

Timing jitter is the unwelcome companion of all electrical systems that use voltage transitions to represent timing information. This paper focuses primarily on jitter in electrical systems.

Physical Layer Compliance Testing for 100BASE-TX

This application note describes various physical layer tests including amplitude domain, return loss, jitter and duty cycle-distortion and compliance testing using TDSET3 software.

The Basics of Serial Data Compliance and Validation Measurements

This primer is designed to help you understand the common aspects of serial data transmission & to explain the analog and digital measurement requirements that apply to these emerging serial technologies

Troubleshooting Ethernet Problems with your Oscilloscope

Learn the basics of the 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet physical layers to help you troubleshoot bus problems or related system issues. Learn how to set up and interpret the results when using automated decoding, triggering, and search on an oscilloscope equipped with Ethernet analysis capability.

DesignCon 2015 Paper – Hybrid Modeled Measured Characterization of a 320 Gbit/s Backplane SystemThis paper explores a case study of a multilane Ethernet backplane 320 Gbit/s system that is difficult to fully measure and deembed, implements a hybrid method of modeling, deembedding, and measurement, explores improvements to the metrology and independent verification of results, and discusses the methodology both at 28Gb/s and 10Gb/s.
Debugging Serial Buses in Embedded System Designs

Learn the basics of the hardware protocols of the most common serial buses. Find out how to use the protocol trigger, decode and search capabilities of oscilloscopes to solve serial bus integration and debug challenges.

Comparison of New versus Legacy Ethernet Compliance Test Automation
