Chapter 9. Measurement Techniques

This chapter addresses frequency domain and time domain measurement techniques for power integrity and signal integrity. The measurement of S-parameters constitutes a vital component of power/signal integrity design verification for high-speed I/O interfaces. Typically, S-parameters are measured with a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) that calculates input/output reflections and transmission by sequentially applying signals at various frequencies and recording the response of the Device Under Test (DUT). The resulting data depicts a set of measured values as a function of frequency. On the other hand, an oscilloscope, a measurement instrument used for Power Delivery Network (PDN) noise measurements and signal jitter ...
