After a long hiatus (I think the last one was in 2005), DesignCon swings by the East coast as part of the EE Times-sponsored Design Days Boston, September 26-29th 2011.
Design Days Boston is actually four conferences in one: Embedded Systems Conference, DesignMed, Designing with LEDs and DesignCon East itself.
I’ll be giving the presentation detailed below, so I hope to see you there!
Measure Without Placing a Probe
Oscilloscope de-embedding software allows you measure signals wherever you want, not just where you can place a probe easily. You just need the s-parameters between the probe and the point of interest. The s-parameters could come from measurement, but this reopens the problem of getting a probe on the point of interest. The paper shows how you can use 3D geometry, material properties, and electromagnetic simulation to create the de-embedding information even for points of interest that are inaccessible.
