Power integrity test

Ensure power integrity in your electronic design

The power delivery network (PDN) provides and delivers the required DC power to all active components on the board. As disturbances on power rails can cause serious impairments to the performance of the used ICs and the overall system, Power Integrity is a paramount requirement in board and system design.

Rohde & Schwarz provides a wide range of tools to efficiently analyze unwanted disturbances on your power rails and to identify their root cause. Our powerful tools also help you to verify the entire power delivery chain from the voltage regulator module (VRM) all the way to the supplied component.

Power integrity measurements with R&S®RTP oscilloscopes

The R&S®RT-ZPR power rail probes include an offset circuit to remove the DC level from the power rail voltage. Together with their 1:1 attenuation ratio and low noise design, this allows power integrity measurements with highest sensitivity.
