A practical guide to signal integrity engineering News & Analysis 7/22/2008 Post a comment With high speed digital designs frequently encountering analog effects, test and measurement experts Dr. Geoff Lawday, David Ireland and Greg Edlund have written a practical guide to help digital designers identify, analyse and ultimately solve their signal integrity issues.
On-the-fly threshold voltage measurement for BTI characterization Design How-To 7/22/2008 Post a comment Advances in traditional CMOS scaling techniques are reaching their limits, bringing up the need for new materials and novel device designs. Along with these new materials and designs come a new emphasis on latent failure mechanisms and the need for more reliability testing. Failure mechanisms such as bias temperature instability (N-BTI and P-BTI) require high speed source and measure capability to resolve fast recovery affects.
Temperature monitoring for trace heating applications Product News 7/21/2008 Post a comment The digital temperature controller DPC III is matched to trace heating applications. It monitors measuring circuits on breaks, interruptions and short circuits of the sensor as well as on under-range and over-range in order to guarantee the process safety.
SATS market seen set for major growth News & Analysis 7/21/2008 Post a comment The semiconductor assembly and test services (SATS) market is expected to beat the overall semiconductor industry growth rate for this year, increasing revenues by 4.1 percent compared to 2007, according to market research group Gartner Inc.

On2's TrueMotion VP7 video codec and "golden frames" Design How-To 7/11/2008 2 comments On2's TrueMotion video codec technology claims well over a billion installs, including major applications like Adobe's Flash Player and Skype. Golden frames, superior realtime quality, adaptability to available cycles, and low decoder complexity combine to make the On2 VP7 codec a leading choice for networked video.
Antennas for HIRF testing News & Analysis 7/4/2008 Post a comment AR RF Microwave Instrumentation has introduced a suite of three high-gain, high-power microwave horn antennas for use in DO 160 HIRF (High Intensity Radiated Frequency) testing.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
