Power Integrity, Digital Power Management and
Power Sequencing Analysis

When: Wed, September 6, 2017

Time: 10:00 AM PDT | 1:00 PM EDT


Multi-phase digital power management ICs (PMICs) present unique testing challenges, especially in terms of understanding transient load response and load/current sharing/tracking.

The recent advent of high bandwidth and high channel count oscilloscopes with high definition (12-bits) has provided new capabilities for analyzing PMIC operation at the IC validation stage and also as designed into an embedded system when more than one DC power rail / PMIC operation needs to be analyzed simultaneously, or for specific single-rail power integrity studies.  

Join Teledyne LeCroy for an overview of digital power management, power integrity, and power sequencing. We'll discuss test of single or multi-phase digital power management ICs (PMICs), voltage regulator modules (VRMs), point-of-load (POLs) switching regulators, low-dropout (LDO) regulators or other DC-DC converter operations under transient load conditions, and test of complete embedded systems that contain these devices. 

Presented by Ken Johnson, Director of Marketing, Product Architect

Easy Data Center Testing up to 100Gbps

When: Available On Demand

Duration: 19 minutes


Increased copper & fiber optic cabling within Data Centers drive client installation and verification demands.  Data Center Operations struggle to install, verify and troubleshoot client connections and Data Center Interconnects deployed daily in expanding data centers that require a hand-held, all-in-one tool for testing and troubleshooting at all data rates, using any given interface, located anywhere in the data center. 


This brief presentation describes the capabilities and ease of use of the Anritsu MT1x00A Network Master Series for copper and fiber cable testing and verification in one-step.


Presented by Danny Gonzalez - Optical Transport Business Development Manager at Anritsu Company. Daniel Gonzalez possesses over 16 years’ experience in digital and optical transport testing, development, training and execution spanning technologies including TDM, SONET, OTN, ATM, Carrier Ethernet and Physical Layer Signal Integrity.


As an Optical Transport Business Development Manager for Anritsu Company, Daniel is responsible for providing technical support to sales, marketing & customers in North & South America. Daniel holds a B. S. in Telecommunications Management from DeVry University,          is a member of OIF (Optical Internetworking Forum) Networking & Operations Working Group (WG), member of IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) & has his MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum) Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Professional Certification. He also has several of his articles published in Lightwave, ISE Magazine, Mission Critical and Pipeline publications.
