Rick Eads
PCIe Principal Engineer
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
With demand on networking and computer performance increasing at a rapid pace, there is a growing need to store, move and process more data in real-time than ever before. As data speeds increase, channel attenuation becomes an inhibitor to moving data across an interface bus. This webcast will highlight Keysight’s contributions with PCIe® 4.0 technology for physical layer transmitter and receiver testing. Topics will include improvements to the PCI Express 3.0 CEM connector to support 16 GT/s signaling, improvements to receiver testing methodologies, and new tools for testing PCI Express 4.0 devices. This webcast will highlight the work Keysight has been engaged in with the industry to pave the way towards higher bandwidth and throughput in digital systems using PCI Express Gen4 technology.


Joel Dunsmore
R&D Fellow
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
Components are the "building blocks" of today’s complex RF systems. In most transceivers, there are amplifiers to boost LO power to mixers, and filters to remove signal harmonics. Often, R&D engineers need to measure these components to verify simulation models and hardware prototypes. For component production, a manufacturer must measure the performance of their products so they can provide accurate specifications. It’s essential to understand how a component will behave to maximize the performance of the system being designed or optimizing efficiency during the manufacturing test process. During this 1-hour webcast, you will learn about the RF transmit/receive signal chain. We will review the role of modern network analysis in characterizing the key components of these systems, covering transmission line theory, S-parameters, Smith Charts, impedance measurements, impedance matching, calibration and error correction. We’ll also discuss transmit/receive and directivity paths and how to optimize dynamic range and accuracy.


I. C. Tillman
Business Development Manager for RF Sensors and Geolocation technologies
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
The strategies being used to locate transmitters are relatively unchanged since the 1970s, but transmitters themselves have changed dramatically. Traditional direction-finding systems based on angle-of-arrival (AOA) techniques are giving way to distributed, time-synchronous systems that utilize time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) techniques. TDOA is more effective against most modern signals, and offers important advantages. This webcast will discuss the fundamental theory of operation of TDOA, illustrating key concepts using a variety of simulations and field measurements. It will also compare AOA and TDOA technologies.


Mike Resso
Signal Integrity Applications Scientist
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
The Vector Network Analyzer is becoming ubiquitous in signal integrity laboratories as data rates increase inside network and data centers. Crosstalk issues in the physical layer are causing more bit errors at the receiver as users try push more data through the channel. This webcast will review tools and techniques for making quality signal integrity measurements using a Vector Network Analyzer. The webcast will begin with an overview of challenges to making signal integrity measurements and methods to overcome these challenges. This will be followed by techniques for identifying sources of crosstalk, channel loss, reflections and eye closure. Advanced error correction techniques will be discussed at the end of the webcast.


Bob Nelson
Senior Applications Engineer
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
This webcast will explain the fundamentals of phase noise measurements. We will discuss what phase noise is and its impact on the performance of receivers and systems being designed. We’ll describe the role of the phase detector as the heart of the measurement and compare and examine phase noise measurement techniques, along with the importance of measuring AM Noise and the benefits of cross correlation.


Kenny Johnson
Power Integrity Lead
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
A product’s functional reliability is directly proportional to the quality of the dc power inside that product. In this webcast, we’ll share techniques and tools for making accurate power integrity measurements on the dc supplies in your products. Confident that we can make good power integrity measurements, we’ll discuss trouble-shooting techniques to identify and solve power integrity issues.


Boon Campbell
Product Marketing Engineer for high performance oscilloscopes
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
With literally hundreds of oscilloscope probes available, how do you know which one is best for your application? This webcast will discuss different specifications and features of oscilloscope probes that you’ll want to understand before selecting a probe for a specific application. Learn about bandwidth, attenuation ratio, probe loading, active vs. passive probes, and other considerations that can affect the accuracy of oscilloscope measurements.


Suren Singh
Industry Applications Specialist
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
With the demand for the transfer of large volumes of data at high speeds, there is an increasing need to utilize the millimeter wave frequency band. This places a demand on designers and manufacturers in the industry to fully characterize and test both active and passive components at the millimeter wave frequencies. This webcast will focus on how a Vector Network Analyzer can address the need for millimeter wave component characterization for both passive and active devices.


Rob Sleigh
Strategic Product Planner
Keysight Technologies

Steve Sekel
Solutions Specialist
Keysight Technologies

Why this Webcast is Important:
The first complete designs incorporating 802.3bs 400Gb Ethernet and CEI-56G using 56+Gb lanes with PAM4 are hitting the characterization labs now. As with each new generation of data center serial link standards, the margins between simulations and performance of actual devices and systems are increasingly tight. Achieving accurate results requires the highest level of care in configuring, de-embedding and calibrating the test setup. This webcast uncovers details in test setup and measurement execution which are critical for getting accurate results.
