Speakers & Partners: Würth Elektronik, PE Systems and Rohde & Schwarz experts

Delivering expertise - application oriented presentations - based on day to day testing challenges

It is common for electronics engineers to face challenges when trying to achieve their testing goals.

During this two-day event, experts from Rohde & Schwarz and our partners will deliver the latest updates of fundamentals and test features of the neXt-generation Oscilloscope, with online theoretical and practical sessions on the following topics:

  • Oscilloscopes and Probing Fundamentals
  • Power Electronics
  • Power and Signal Integrity
  • EMC

The live sessions were streamed simultaneously in English, French, German, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
