Lesson 1 - Introduction - Designing for Signal Integrity
Learn how to use basic signal integrity (SI) analysis techniques such as eye diagrams, S-parameters, time-domain reflectometry (TDR), and single pulse response to solve signal integrity problems.
Why take Designing for Signal Integrity?
Any engineer designing for a high-speed digital interface such as USB must worry about bandwidth from DC all the way up to gigahertz range. Given such wide bandwidth, a good understanding in signal integrity is a crucial part of the product’s design and test.
This course will help you better understand signal integrity by analyzing an example channel with mixed-mode S-parameters, eye diagram, time-domain reflectometry (TDR), and single pulse response.
