To characterize high-speed digital links, jitter measurements are key to ascertain the quality of the signal being transmitted, and yieds a quick view of the Bit Error Ration that can be supported by the link. The measurement of jitter, even if the user is provided a one-button interface, is a sophisticated affair taking into account clock recovery and knowledge of phase locked loops, jitter decomposition techniques and assumptions for them, crosstalk and its effects, and waveform statistics that require different approaches.
This webcast will review analysis of a digital link and jitter decomposition, introduce whole eye analysis, and guide engineers through details and considerations that should be made in making valid jitter measurements. After viewing this, the engineer will realize the measurement of jitter is an engineering process. Register now!
