A product’s reliability and system performance is affected by the signal integrity through the interconnects, transmitters, and receivers, which can be a challenge in designing high speed systems. Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) must also be effectively and accurately used for time domain and frequency domain measurements. This application note discusses how to use VNAs for time domain measurements, as well as how the time and frequency domain relate, and what to look out for when measuring them.
