To keep efficiency high, the switching time needs to be kept short. But short switching time translates into high slew rates, which means high-frequencies. These high frequencies can “escape” from a power supply and cause EMC problems or problems with output noise. If you’ve been struggling to balance these factors in your design, you might be interested in a pair of roughly four-minute videos that one of our senior applications engineers has put together.</p><fieldset class="fieldgroup group-classifications"><legend>Klassifikationen</legend><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-product-series"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/oscilloscope/mdo4000c-mixed-domain-oscilloscope%20">MDO4000</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/oscilloscope/mdo3000-mixed-domain-oscilloscope">MDO3000</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://de.tek.com/blog/evaluating-power-supply-performance-oscilloscope-switching-loss-switching-noise" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://de.tek.com/blog/evaluating-power-supply-performance-oscilloscope-switching-loss-switching-noise#comments Fri, 10 Mar 2017 19:04:06 +0000 Tektronix Experts 1660919 at http://de.tek.com Tektronix probe innovations detailed in Electronic Design’s Test.Pass http://de.tek.com/blog/tektronix-probe-innovations-detailed-electronic-design%E2%80%99s-testpass <p><img src="/sites/tek.com/files/media/image/ED_Tektronix-Probes-APEC_Figure-1.jpg" alt="" title="" width="595" height="309" class="nrembrowser-thumbnail-image" /></p><p>Tektronix recently introduced the <a href="http://tektronix.io/0CkB8h">P7700 Series of probes</a> and demonstrated the IsoVu galvanically isolated measurement probe at APEC 2016 last month.
