Event Description

Signal Integrity Journal Webinar Series

Title: PCIe 5.0 Post-Layout Verification in MATLAB

Date: September 20, 2023

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: MathWorks

Presented by: Andy Zambell, Sr. Product Marketing Engineer for SerDes and Signal Integrity applications, MathWorks

In this webinar, we will explore post-layout verification of a high-speed serial printed circuit board (PCB) created in Cadence® Allegro. We will demonstrate how to analyze multiple PCIe 5.0 channels using IBIS-AMI models and loopback boards to determine eye diagram performance and margins. The webinar will cover PCB import, setup, simulation, and effective debugging techniques.

Highlights of the webinar include:

  • Importing and setting up PCB databases.
  • Setting up a multi-board simulation.
  • Simulating over 200 PCIe 5.0 channels.
  • Analyze results and debug closed eye diagrams.

By the end of the webinar, you will have a comprehensive understanding of Signal Integrity Toolbox and its practical application for PCB post-layout verification, enabling you to effectively diagnose and resolve signal integrity issues.
