Length : 1 day
Participants in this class will utilize the latest simulation and modeling techniques available for the design and analysis of serial data channels. A basic channel with default models is used for the first simulation so 2D eye diagrams, 3D eye diagrams, and bathtub curves can be generated and viewed.
Next the participants will modify the analysis options to control the bit rate of the channel and inject distortion and jitter into the channel. IBIS-AMI models will then be discussed and the users will adjust AMI parameters and use a vendor based IBIS-AMI model in the simulation. A pre-route scenario will then be investigated with the TLine Editor being used to create transmission line models and the Via Wizard used to create via models. Finally, a post-route scenario will be covered and PowerSI™ will be used to extract an S-Parameter model from the routed interconnect of a PCB Editor board database.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
Define a basic serial link in SystemSI™ and simulate it using channel analysis techniques, Modify the simulation parameters such that the effects of jitter, noise, and data pattern are included in the simulation results, Include the effects of crosstalk in a channel simulation, Include IBIS-AMI algorithmic models and adjust their parameters during simulation, View waveforms, eye diagrams, and bathtub curves, Use SystemSI in a design setting, sweeping variables for solution space exploration, Use AMI Builder to compile IBIS AMI models, Use the TLine Editor to create transmission line models, Use the Via Wizard to create via models, Use PowerSI to extract S-Parameter models from routing in a PCB Editor board file
