Overcome challenges in gigabit design

High-speed digital standards are evolving to keep pace with emerging technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and autonomous vehicles. Each change introduces new and more complex challenges that can degrade the signal in your digital design. Keysight’s simulation software can help you anticipate and overcome new test challenges for your digital designs. Use it today to optimize your design's performance, lower cost and realize more predictable design outcomes.

Overcome Signal Integrity Issues

Whether you design for the latest evolution of PCI Express or push boundaries with PAM-4 signaling, overcoming challenges in high-speed serial design takes hours of design time. Gain design efficiency using integrated channel and electromagnetic (EM) simulation. Accurately simulate complex signal links with jitter, equalization, and clock and data recovery with the channel simulator and IBIS-AMI models. Obtain high-accuracy EM models in minutes rather than hours.

Designing for Power Integrity

Power Integrity (PI) issues can cost thousands of dollars to fix. Unnoticed power integrity issues lead to poor product reliability. You need a cohesive design flow for frequency and time-domain analysis of power distribution networks (PDNs). Get software tools to enable power-aware signal integrity analysis.

Address DDR Memory Challenges

Double Data Rate (DDR) memory system designers contend with shrinking timing and voltage margins, and an increasing number of compliance measurements. They must also perform numerous receiver mask tests at ultra-low bit error rates.

With Keysight’s Memory Designer software, DDR memory designers can now extract EM models, simulate buses, and perform compliance testing faster. And because the same measurement science is used for both simulation and hardware verification, they can easily compare simulation and measurements.
