S-Parameter Checklist

Quantum Channel Designer’s Automated S-Parameter Checklist

Most signal integrity engineers work with S-parameter files on a daily basis - creating, combining and including them into simulations used to make design decisions. However, the quality of S-parameter data varies widely and typical metrics of causality, passivity and reciprocity don’t always flag problems that impact simulation accuracy.

Benefits of the S-Parameter Checklist

  • Saves time by identifying model issues up front in the design process
  • Saves time by correcting simple problems without requiring model regeneration
  • Creates clear documentation for tests performed and issues found
  • Increases confidence in system simulation results
  • Integrates seamlessly with QCD S-parameter management
