Mentor White Paper: Analyzing Crosstalk’s Impact on BER Performance


Reading time ( words)

This paper by Mentor Graphics’ Vladimir Dmitriev-Zdorov and Zhen Mu discusses two major issues associated with channel crosstalk that have not been fully addressed previously: models from measurements and algorithms for BER prediction.

It presents a practical solution that allows designers to add in near-end or far-end crosstalk characterized by a group of 4-port S-parameters, rather than to perform multiport parameter characterization.

The paper then presents in details two simulation approaches for channel crosstalk: synchronous and asynchronous algorithms, and considers their implementations in time and statistical domains.

Finally, it gives examples of the proposed procedures implemented together with IBIS-AMI buffer models and discusses their comparative advantages and limitations.

The History of Predictive Engineering

11/01/2017 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
It all started in 1983, at HP, when I complained to our group's vice president that our W. Edwards Deming and Total Quality Management (TQM) Six Sigma training was being concentrated in PCB manufacturing. We had eliminated final inspection and instead placed quality in the hands of the operators with a final electrical test. The electrical test was governed by what we learned from Deming.
