Rapid and Accurate Simulation of Multi-Gigabit Serial Channels
Who Should Attend:
The new features include a fast transient tool that uses long, user-defined bit patterns to produce an eye diagram. This analysis allows engineers to create controlled stress tests and to identify specific bit sequences that cause bit errors. The statistical tool produces both eye diagram plots and BER curves for complete high-speed channels in minutes. Because these technologies link to full-wave electromagnetic field solvers and a high-capacity circuit simulation engine, accuracy is not sacrificed for the improved simulation speed.
After a brief introduction, two channel examples will be demonstrated. The first channel will serve to highlight the general capabilities of the simulation technologies. The second will demonstrate the use of the tool in the pre-layout design of a serialized/deserialized (SerDes) channel with equalization developed for IBM’s next-generation BladeServer backplane.
