  • Analyze and Optimize 32- to 56-Gbps Serial Link Channels
    Presented by Keysight, Wild River Technology, and Xilinx

    This webcast introduces a forensic channel analysis approach that implements both measurement hardware and EDA tools with contemporary SerDes internal tools (e.g., internal eye scan) for the purpose of optimizing the BER for highly pathological channels (i.e. identifying the major contributors to signal degradation in the link). State-of-the-art pulse response analysis such as this, provides valuable insight into the behavior of the channel and the effective use of CTLE, FFE, and DFE equalization techniques, in order to mitigate crosstalk, attenuation and return loss.

    Specific topics to be covered include: optimization, BER, PAM-4, IBIS-AMI, S-parameters, causality, passivity, EQ, DFE, FFE, CTLE, and the latest in pulse response analysis and optimization.
     
  • Four Essential Steps for EDA Simulation Measurement Mastery
    Presented by Simbeor and Wild River Technology
    This seminar will help you achieve this level of modeling measurement using Simbeor as demonstrated using Wild River Technology’s CMP-28 Advanced Channel Modeling Platform in a systematized and high-confidence approach
    • Step 1: Measure S-parameters and validate quality
    • Step 2: Import and adjust stack-up and board geometry into EDA tool
    • Step 3: Identify broadband dielectric and conductor roughness models
    • Step 4: Simulate all structures on the validation board without further adjustments and compare magnitude and phase of S-parameters, TDR/TDT and eye diagrams
       
  • How to Use Fixture De-Embedding to Match Signal Integrity Simulations to Measurements
    Presented by Keysight, featuring Wild River Technology channel modeling platforms
    This video provides a quick overview of how fixture de-embedding from measurements, or embedding into simulations is a critical step for matching simulations to measurements for physical layer Tx to Rx channels. Multigigabit channels that include multi-layer laminate or printed circuit board structures require a fixture to go from the coaxial connections of the measuring instrument to the planar transmission line structures on a PCB. This fixture is not calibrated out by the coaxial calibration of the instrument and is often neglected in the simulation. This video will go through a four-step process to show how to de-embed the fixture from the measurement to validate the PCB channel model, then how to embed the fixture with the model to do a direct compare of simulation to full-path measurement both in the frequency domain and time domain. The end result is demonstrated using a 32Gb/s example of simulation to measurement correlation.
