Technical Paper Presentation:

Studying Clock Recovery Performance Using IBIS-AMI Models
Session 9-TP6, Tuesday, 2/1/2011, 2:50-3:30PM

This paper introduces a method for extracting the jitter transfer function, jitter tolerance and pattern dependent jitter from an IBIS-AMI model under realistic channel conditions, presenting examples from a generic bang-bang clock recovery circuit and several commercial SerDes designs.


Technical Panel Discussion:

How to Avoid Butchering S-Parameters
Session TP-T3, Tuesday, 2/1/2011, 3:45-5:00 AM

This panel brings together experts with a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives to discuss ways to avoid generating bad S parameters. Specific topics include causality, passivity, reciprocity, de-embedding, reference planes, and measurement techniques. Eric Bogatin (Bogatin Enterprises), Mike Jenkins (Xilinx), Brian Kirk (Amphenol), YuriyShlepnev (Simberian) and Mike Steinberger (SiSoft) will presenttheir points of view- some widely held and some less well known. Through a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each point of view, attendees will gain a broader understanding of S parameters in general and what it takes to produce good S parameter files

DesignCon will be held in the Santa Clara Convention Center in San Jose. Exhibition hours are from 12:30PM to 6:00 PM on both Tuesday and Wednesday, February 1-2. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to seeing you this year at DesignCon!
