SIEMC Pro Tune Up Class

Pro Tune Up is a one day Signal Integrity, Power Integrity, and Electro-Magnetic Interference Control class that gives the student a well rounded explanation of proper high speed system design.

The purpose of the class is to teach the design methods and validation strategies necessary to assure first time success when implementing modern systems that would typically include, DDR3 / 4, SERDES, LVDS, PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 1,2,3, Analog / Digital / RF, Switching Power Supplies, etc.

Pro Tune Up is based on a design methodology developed by a major telecommunications company which has been documented over multiple years and thousands of designs to produce “right the first time” results 99% of the time. “Right the first time” means the systems work correctly at full speed, they are reliable, they have clearly defined manufacturing margins, and they are quiet enough to pass FCC & CISPR radiated emissions tests on the first try!
Target Audience: Electrical Engineers, FPGA Designers, EMC Certification Engineers and CAD Layout Designers responsible for implementing high speed digital and mixed analog digital systems.

SERDES 4 Via vs Frequency

If you look at all SERDES via's as perfectly matched differential paths with 64 bit accuracy, you will gloss over some very troubling real world issues. If you accept the argument that the SERDES signal is really complimentary single ended and not true differential, this video will help you avoid a number of problems.
