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.

Wild River ISI-56 Platform Accelerates SerDes Testing

02/02/2021 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with Al Neves, founder and CTO of Wild River Technology, about the release of their new ISI-56 loss modeling platform. Al explains why it was so critical that this tool meets the stringent requirements of the IEEE P370 specification (which he helped develop), and why he believes this is currently the best tool for SerDes testing and characterization.

Cutting Respins: Journey to the Single-spin PCB

01/07/2021 | Chris Young, The Goebel Company
PCB design is more than a short sprint to the finish line; it is a journey best suited for the prepared adventurer. According to a study by Lifecycle Insights, the average PCB design project requires 2.9 respins. These respins can cost anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars—each! As an engineer/business owner, I find respins frustrating because I would rather spend my time and money applying scientific principles inventing, improving technology, and solving problems. I am not an advocate for perfectionism, but rather I focus on becoming a better adventurer. Sometimes I get to taste the sweet wine that is a single spin PCB. As fellow adventurers, let’s discuss some topics that influence unnecessary return trips on our PCB design journey: simulation, technical reviews, and interest in PCB design.
