5 tips for fast, accurate power integrity measurements

Increasing demands on power distribution networks have resulted in smaller DC rails, as well as a proliferation of rails that ensure clean power reaches the pins of integrated circuits.

This guide covers five tips for making accurate power integrity measurements with oscilloscopes:

  • Choosing a scope with low noise is critical to accurate power integrity measurements
  • Coupling the scope with a 1:1 probe with built-in offset, high bandwidth, high DC impedance and an integrated R&S®ProbeMeter delivers superior capability and measurements
  • Understanding and correctly setting a number of oscilloscope attributes such as vertical scaling and bandwidth limit filters increases the accuracy of results
  • Adding frequency domain view enables users to quickly isolate coupled signals
  • Fast update rates let users test power rails more quickly

When coupled with the R&S®RT-ZPR20 power rail probe, the R&S®RTO and R&S®RTE digital oscilloscopes give you faster, highly accurate power integrity measurements.
