Introduction to boundary-scan - US

When: October 24, 2017

9:00 AM MDT / 11:00 AM EDT


An eye-opener in the world of structural testing.

Many electronics assemblies already include JTAG/boundary-scan test circuitry which is either underused or not used at all. This webinar aims to inform test- and development engineers of the possibilities of this built-in test and device programming feature.



Design for Test with boundary-scan - US

When: October 26, 2017

9:00 AM MDT / 11:00 AM EDT



Determine how ready is your design for boundary-scan? Interactively ask questions!


The earlier a fault or a defect is detected in the design phase or during the production process, it will cost less money to remedy it and it will be faster ready for production or shipment. This webinar explains the most important DfT rules.



JTAG ProVision, inexpensive automated PCB test

When: October 31, 2017

9:00 AM MDT / 11:00 AM EDT




JTAG ProVision, the inexpensive PCB methodology in manufacturing, Demonstration with JTAG ProVision on how to do modeling and automatically generate the test/programming applications, explain how this can work for you and save time and money,


ProVision combines advanced automation with the level of control and precision that engineers demand when creating test programs and in-system programming (ISP) routines for PLDs, FPGAs, flash memories, serial PROMs and other devices. Learn more about its easy to use features.



Identifying and Overcoming Noise in Data Acquisition

When: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

11:00 AM Pacific / 2:00 PM Eastern



Have you ever captured noisy data to your PC, having to then use software to "massage" the data to try and yield useful results?


By identifying and reducing seven different sources of noise, you’ll increase your measurement accuracy and reliability to obtain your desired results. Join us for a 1-hour webinar and learn the basic sources of electrical noise in data-acquisition systems including power line, aliasing, common mode, and quantization noise. You will learn how to easily identify, isolate, and remove these noise sources to ensure measurement data is accurate and reliable.


The seven noise sources covered in this webinar include:


  • Quantization noise

  • A/D internal noise

  • Power line noise

  • Time Skew

  • Aliasing noise

  • Common mode noise

  • Radiated noise (EMI)


Presented by Richard Patterson, Yokogawa Product Manager. Richard Patterson has 12 years of industry experience in measurement, automation, test, and data acquisition. He completed his M.S. in Physics at The Ohio State University in 2004.



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.
