OPTICAL DISC MASTERING – SIGNAL INTEGRITY TESTING
With more than twelve years of experience in the optical disc industry, I have developed a broad range of test applications that verify the signal integrity of multiple disc formats. Using digital data acquisition and other test instrumentation, operating under automated program control, these test applications have verified every aspect of the generated signals. Testing signal integrity to extremely close tolerances, these tests resulted in improved disc quality and manufacturer throughput at replication facilities. Intricate Pit Geometry control, Inter-Symbol-Interference Write Strategies, and format generator signal Jitter were all verified to within a few picoseconds of tolerance.
