I’m giving a webcast next week entitled How to Optimize Your SerDes Design During the Pre-layout Phase followed by an interactive Q&A. Click on the title link for free registration.

Date & time: Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 10am US Pacific Time / 1pm US Eastern Time

Abstract:

In the era of receiver equalization, older stackup and controlled impedance line design tools are obsolete because the metrics they output (frequency response) are irrelevant. The metric that matters today is the post-equalization eye opening. In this webcast we will show you how to optimize the pre-layout design using a PCI Express transmitter, channel, and receiver as an example.

Hope to see you there!

Import Touchstone® Files into ADS with a Dual-in-line Symbol

In ADS, the default SnP symbols (for example the ones on the Data Items pallette) are aimed at RF/microwave applications. For signal integrity and power integrity applications, I like to use dual-in-line symbols (with odd-numbered pins on the left side and a even on the right) instead. This short video clip titled Import Touchstone® Files into ADS with a Dual-in-line Symbol shows you how I do it. It works with any port count large or small (I used an *.S256P in this video) and it also supports two styles of “comment field port names” that have become fairly common. Please leave a comment on this method. Thanks!
