Signal Integrity Fundamentals

Data centers depend on channels in transmit and receive systems to accurately and efficiently deliver valuable information. A poorly performing device in a channel can cause signal integrity issues and jeopardize the delivery of intelligible data. That makes developing channel devices and interconnects with high signal integrity critical. Testing and identifying the sources of signal integrity issues in a device, then fixing them, is a big challenge. This paper includes simulation and measurement recommendations to help you design your device for high signal integrity.
