SANTA CLARA – Sierra Circuits will host a signal integrity/power integrity workshop Sept. 12-13 at Levi’s Stadium here.
Heidi Barnes, DesignCon 2017 Engineer of the Year, and Tim Wang-Lee, Keysight signal integrity application scientist, will provide the skills to tackle everyday SI and PI challenges with Keysight PathWave Advanced Design System.
The SI session starts with the holistic approach to solve any signal integrity problems using analysis techniques such as eye diagram, mixed-mode S-parameters, time domain reflectometry and single pulse response. The session continues to exercise the techniques in design and exploration of single-ended and differential channels. The SI workshop concludes with EM model extraction and the investigation of application and standards.
The PI sessions will cover the flat impedance design technique and explore the cohesive ADS power integrity eco-system. In the process of PI eco-system simulations, designers will use impedance vs. frequency data to create measured models, estimate decoupling capacitance, and debug noise ripple on a power rail.
