Find and diagnose Jitter caused by Power Integrity Problems

Learn how to combine jitter and power integrity analysis into a formidable tool for debugging SERDES, circuits, networks, and systems

This application note:

  • Describes the connection between signal integrity, specifically jitter, and power integrity
  • Gives a brief review of jitter measurements and terminology, including eye diagrams and jitter decomposition
  • Covers random and periodic jitter on clocks and relates periodic jitter to power integrity
  • Describes sources of noise on power integrity, especially noise likely to cause jitter on serial data lines
  • Gives an example of the impact of ripple on a power rail causing jitter on a clock
