Two New Open Source Tools for De-embedding

By Eric Bogatin


At DesignCon 2018, the IEEE P370 standards group announced the release of two important tools to assist all engineers for de-embedding. In the presentation by Jason Ellison and Heidi Barnes, “A NIST Traceable PCB Kit for Evaluating the Accuracy of De-Embedding Algorithms and Corresponding Metrics,” the two new tools were announced, a board kit and a de-embedding software tool. These two tools are the first series of products released as open source from the P370. Expect more in the next year.

Effective Return Loss for 112G and 56G PAM 4



This presentation proposes using a pulse echo for time domain reflectometry (TDR) rather the commonly used step function echo. The echoed pulse response of a single symbol is convolved with the modulation signal levels to produce an effective reflection coefficient metric at a specified bit error ratio (BER). Learn more.
