How TDR Impedance Measurements Work

Measuring impedance and checking for faults and discontinuities on different points of a PCB trace is not a cakewalk. This is because impedance is an AC property and cannot be measured like resistance. Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) impedance measurements are essential for ensuring signal integrity in a PCB design.
