Nine Essential Principles of Signal Integrity
By Eric Bogatin


SIJ technical editor Eric Bogatin notes that there are some problems that occur over and over again across product families and applications. They have a handful of essential principles at their underlying root cause. In this blog, he explains that if we really understand these underlying principles, the root cause of the problems will be more apparent and their solutions closer to implement.


Design Rule Checks for High-Speed PCB Design
By Patrick Carrier

From the Archives

Coping with Signal Integrity and EMI issues is a daily challenge for PCB design engineers.  While many rely on design reviews and manual checking to identify these issues, a more efficient way to pinpoint them is the use of automated design rule checks (DRCs). This article discusses some of the common Signal Integrity and EMI issues that can be found using DRCs.

Crosstalk in PAM4 Systems


The transition from NRZ to PAM4 takes us from jitter-limited to noise-limited signaling and crosstalk is the most insidious noise of all. This webinar puts you front and center in the battle between aggressors and victims! We’ll start with crosstalk physics, PSXT, NEXT and FEXT, move to techniques for predicting crosstalk from channel designs, and then dive into high-rate approaches to crosstalk analysis: ICR, IXT and IMR, ICN, right up to the big daddy, COM—we might even invent an all new acronym and not tell anyone what it stands for. Registration is live! Join us on Tuesday, January 12 for this informative presentation by Ransom Stephens.
