“Following a successful expansion of our distribution agreement with Tektronix in UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) we have decided to host this webcast as a part of our ongoing series of webinars initiated by Farnell to support our customers in producing world-class designs,” said Richard Curtin, Farnell’s Head of Semiconductors Passives and Optoelectronics (SEPO) Product and Supplier Management. “Collaborating with a leading supplier like Tektronix helps us bring customers the best the industry has to offer in terms of thought-leadership and expertise in electronics engineering.”

During the hour-long webcast, Tektronix Technical Marketing Manager Trevor J. Smith will explore the transition from parallel to serial data in embedded system designs and the challenges this presents to engineers. He will also briefly review some of the most widely used buses in industry today, including I2C and SPI, and the key measurements needed to debug and validate proper functionality.

The webcast will comprise a 45-minute online presentation followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. The session also will be archived after the event and can be accessed by visiting (under documents section). This webcast will be ideal for electronic design engineers and students who want to stay current with the latest cutting-edge debugging serial buses technologies.

The full session will explain how to:

§ Transition from parallel to serial buses in embedded systems design

§ Design implications of serial communications and debug challenges

§ Review of common serial bus standards

§ Serial bus troubleshooting and performance analysis

§ Tools to address the challenges of serial bus design verification

“Serial data communications employed in the newest embedded systems technologies present designers with significant challenges,” said Trevor J. Smith, Technical Marketing Manager at Tektronix. This webinar will show how the popular MSO and DPO 2000, 3000 and 4000 series oscilloscopes efficiently solve serial debug challenges.”
