Abstract:As frequencies have increased in circuits used for communication electronics, signal integrity concepts have become some of the foremost challenges that circuit designers must deal with. Specifically, high-speed links have been the focus of much of the research into mitigating signal integrity issues. To combat the effects of jitter and other signal integrity problems, circuit designers have begun using increasingly more complex circuitry peripheral to the high-speed link. This presents a challenge for system level designers because of their reliance on models accurately characterizing the underlying transistor level design. Existing standards, such as IBIS-AMI, are currently used at the system level to create designs. Alternatively, X-parameters may present a more intuitive and accurate method to generate models that are detailed and that preserve intellectual property.
