Power Supply Analysis

Thumbnail

Make reliable, repeatable power quality, harmonics, switching loss, safe operating area measurements and more, with the automated power measurement and analysis. Save time with SPMI decoding and triggering. And rely on the 6 Series MSO low-noise performance for accurate evaluations of power supply noise.

Highlights

  • Power quality and harmonics
  • Switching loss and safe operating area
  • In-circuit inductor and transformer analysis
  • SPMI power management bus decoding and triggering

Jitter Analysis

6 series - Jitter Analysis Configuration

Clocks are the heart of every embedded system and digital communication link. Jitter and other clock distortion can impact system operation, and getting to the root cause can be challenging without the right analysis tools.

Highlights

  • Standard phase noise, TIE, and frequency plots and histograms
  • Optional advanced analysis with jitter decomposition and clock recovery

Serial Standards Compliance Testing

Thumbnail

Systems depend on fast, reliable data transfer. And high speed digital standards rely on rigorous test procedures to ensure that reliability. Automated compliance testing software manages the whole testing process with the 6 Series MSO -- setup, making measurements, checking against standard limits, and generating thorough reports.

Highlights

  • Ethernet 10/100/1000BASE-T
  • Ethernet XGBT Compliance
  • Ethernet NBASE-T Compliance
  • USB 2.0
  • MIPI D-PHY 1.2
  • Automotive Ethernet 100/1000BASE-T1

Power Integrity

6 series - power integrity

Today’s boards can have 20 or more power rails. Most of these are less than a few volts and have strict noise limits. Accurate measurements demand special attention.

Highlights

  • Digital Power Management option automates ripple and turn-on/off measurements
  • Compatible with low-noise TPR Series power-rail probes
  • Low measurement system noise
