Analyzing jitter using a spectrum approach

Keywords:application note? jitter analysis? spectrum analyzer?

Tektronix' DPOJET application software uses real time jitter analysis tools with Rj/Dj separation to predict system bit error ratio.

As clock rates increase and timing budgets get smaller, timing characterization continues to become more important. With today's designs, you can't stop at characterizing jitter; you must also be able to investigate the causes of jitter by accurately measuring jitter and use it as a tool to predict system behavior over periods and with equipment that minimizes the total cost to your company. That means being able to analyze jitter using a spectrum approach on a multi-use tool like an oscilloscope. This results in designs being brought to market faster and made more robust to operate better in today's high-speed environment while minimizing the investment required for engineering tools.
