Keysight Webinar

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.

Description

Why this webcast is important:
SerDes design engineers often find themselves confronted with channels that prove quite difficult to optimize. “It is all about the margins”.

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 during this webcast include: optimization, BER, PAM-4, IBIS-AMI, S-parameters, causality, passivity, EQ, DFE, FFE, CTLE, and the latest in pulse response analysis and optimization.

Who should view this webcast:
Engineers and managers working on signal integrity design, characterization, and validation who want insight into the latest tips and techniques for optimizing the physical layer (package, PCBs & interconnects) for 32- to 56- Gbps communication links.

ber-and-com-way-of-channel-compliance-evaluation-what-are-the-sources-of-differences-presentation-at-edi-con-2016  Since the IEEE 802.3bj 100 Gb/s Backplane Ethernet standard has been officially approved, Channel Operating Margin (COM) will likely become an important quality-evaluation method for SERDES links. Although COM was preceded by a long history of eye/BER evaluation techniques, those methods have never been officially standardized. Different tools used their own smart approaches to find a channel characterization response, to select the optimal sampling location and properly center the eye or...
designcon-award-winning-paper-by-mentor-graphics-and-wild-river-technology This paper, "BER- and COM-Way of Channel-Compliance Evaluation: What Are the Sources of Differences?" won the DesignCon 2016 Best Paper Award. It analyzes the computational procedure specified for Channel Operation Margin (COM) and compares it to traditional statistical eye/BER analysis.  The  paper was written by Vladimir Dmitriev-Zdorov, Chuck Ferry, and Christian Filip of Mentor Graphics, and Alfred P. Neves of Wild River Technology. To read this paper, click here.
