Demystifying De-embedding for Testing High Speed Digital and RF Signals

This webinar explores the impact of the measurement setup on testing results, and the optimal test methods for dealing with high-speed digital and RF signal measurements.

Overview

This webinar is designed for engineers who deal with high-speed digital and RF signal measurements while using plenty of cables, converters, adapters, text fixtures and amplifiers. It will explore the impact of the measurement setup on the results and the methods that can help you obtain the real signal of the device under test, something that is required by multiple standards.

Attendees will learn in great detail about the error sources such as bandwidth limitation, impedance mismatch, coupling and probing effects. The presenters will discuss and use demonstrations to show how you can model and eliminate those errors.

Defining system parameters, extracting and importing S parameters and observing the de-embedded response are key steps of an easy de-embedding process. The presenters will demonstrate with an oscilloscope, including the necessary software and real-time hardware options.
