In this course, learn about how to measure signal integrity and perform network analysis of your high-speed communication products.
Lesson 1 - Introduction - Signal Integrity and Network Analysis
Resso provides an overview of signal integrity and network analysis. He discusses the importance of signal integrity in high-speed electronic systems, and the challenges that engineers face in ensuring that their designs meet signal integrity requirements.
Lesson 2 - Internet Infrastructure
Garbouz provides an overview of the internet infrastructure and how signal integrity plays a role in its performance. He discusses the different types of networks that make up the internet, and the challenges that engineers face in ensuring that these networks can reliably transmit data at high speeds.
Lesson 3 - Transmission Lines, Impedance, S-Parameters
Resso discusses the basics of transmission lines, impedance, and S-parameters. He explains how these concepts are related to signal integrity, and how they can be used to design, analyze, and test high-speed electronic systems.
Lesson 4 - Measurement Metrics, Single Ended vs. Differential S-Parameters
Garbouz discusses the different measurement metrics that can be used to characterize signal integrity. He begins by discussing single-ended measurements, which are typically used for low-speed signals. Single-ended measurements are made on a single trace, and they can be used to measure parameters such as amplitude, rise/fall time, and jitter.
Lesson 5 - TDR and VNA Measurement Setups
Discuss the different measurement setups that can be used with time domain reflectometry (TDR) and vector network analyzers (VNAs) to measure signal integrity.
Lesson 6 - Eye Diagram Analysis
The eye diagram, a graphical representation of a digital signal that can be used to diagnose signal integrity problems. The video covers how to interpret an eye diagram, common eye diagram anomalies, and how to use eye diagrams to troubleshoot signal integrity problems.
Lesson 7 - Typical PCB SI Issues
Discusses the common manufacturing issues that can affect signal integrity on printed circuit boards (PCBs). The lesson covers defects in the PCB material, layout, and manufacturing process, and how to prevent and detect these defects.
Lesson 8 - Real World Measurements - Backplane Design
The real-world challenges of measuring signal integrity on backplanes. The lesson covers the different measurement setups that can be used, the challenges of de-embedding, and the importance of using calibrated equipment.
Lesson 9 - Error Correction Techniques
The error correction techniques that can be used to improve the reliability of digital signals. The lesson covers the different types of error correction codes, how they work, and how to choose the right error correction code for a particular application.
