Mentor Webinar Sept. 8: Post-Route Verification of Multi-Gigabit Channels


Reading time ( words)

Performing post-layout verification of multi-gigabit SerDes channels is a challenging but necessary task, because even the most detailed pre-layout simulation studies and routing guidelines can’t anticipate everything. Designs that meet detailed routing requirements can still fail due to discontinuities and resonances that couldn’t have been anticipated.

The large numbers of channels in modern designs makes post-route verification difficult; each channel must be modeled and analyzed individually, which requires an automated, efficient process to be successful. Once modeled, each channel must be analyzed for compliance with protocol requirements in the same automated fashion. This September 8 webinar presented by Mentor, a Siemens business, will discuss requirements for effective SerDes channel post-route verification and show how they can be achieved.

  • Different types of SerDes compliance analysis
  • Compliance analysis using Channel Operating Margin (COM)
  • Differences between COM analysis and IBIS-AMI simulation
  • Different forms of Tx/Rx equalization and when they are effective
  • How to identify areas of a SerDes channel that require 3D EM modeling
  • How to isolate individual physical effects and determine their effect on system margin
  • How to perform post-layout “what if” analysis for SerDes channels
  • How to determine the impact of crosstalk on SerDes channel margins   

Presenters are Min Maung, senior technical marketing engineer for HyperLynx software, and Todd Westerhoff, high-speed marketing manager.

The I-Connect Editorial Team recently spoke with Bob Williams, managing director of Pulsonix. He discussed some of the new features in the upcoming version of the Pulsonix PCB design tool, Version 12, including collision avoidance and other 3D options that allow certain MCAD functions within the ECAD environment.

A Textbook Look: Signal Integrity and Impedance

05/18/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Believing that I knew a bit about signal integrity and controlled impedance, I was pleased to take the opportunity to connect with an educational webinar that I hoped would extend my knowledge. In the event I was surprised at how little I actually knew, and the webinar was an excellent learning opportunity. The webinar was introduced and expertly moderated by Anna Brockman of Phoenix Contact in Germany.

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Stackups: The Design within the Design

04/18/2022 | Skyler Sopp, Mercury Systems
If you have ever contemplated crosstalk, eye closure, power loss, or a list of other issues defined in this textbook, then you also need to understand what, why, and how stackups can and will impact your circuit’s performance. After all, the stackup is one of the few things that directly touches every single part of your design; therefore, you must set yourself up for the highest probability of success by establishing a strong foundation through a well-designed stackup.
