Signal Integrity & Power Integrity Workshop

Presented by Heidi Barnes and Tim Wang-Lee from Keysight Technologies

SUNNYVALE, CA JULY 16TH Sierra Circuits will host a SI/PI workshop presented by DesignCon 2017 Engineer of the Year, Heidi Barnes, and Signal Integrity Application Scientist, Tim Wang-Lee, from Keysight Technologies.

Date: September 12th and 13th, 2019

Location: Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA

Workshop Overview

This intensive Signal Integrity and Power Integrity workshop provides you with the necessary skills to tackle everyday SI and PI challenges with Keysight PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS).

The SI session starts with the holistic approach to solve any signal integrity problems by using analysis techniques such as eye diagram, mixed-mode S-parameters, time domain reflectometry (TDR) and single pulse response. The session continues to exercise the techniques in design and exploration of single-ended and differential channels. Finally, the SI workshop concludes with EM model extraction and investigation of application and standards.

In the PI sessions, we cover the elegant flat impedance design technique and explore the cohesive ADS Power Integrity eco-system. In the process of PI eco-system simulations, you will use impedance vs. frequency data to create measured models, estimate decoupling capacitance, and debug noise ripple on a power rail.

The combination of lecture and hands-on exercises allows attendees to explore the presented topics in real-time while being mentored by an expert in the field. The hands-on approach allows you to gain confidence in your ability to apply these skills on your own, at your workplace. You will learn to design, simulate and troubleshoot most common Signal Integrity and Power Integrity related issues.
