We present a method for a fast and accurate broadband determination of the behaviour of analogue and mixed-signal circuits. This technique is based on impulse response (IR) evaluation using pseudo-random Maximum–Length Sequences (MLS). This approach provides a large dynamic range and is thus an optimal solution for measurements in noisy environments and for low-power test signals.
