We propose a methodology to model fiber weave based on cross-section to determine worst case skew impact for a particular glass style on defined differential pair pitch to make a behavioral glass-weave based model. Using effective test coupon design, we collect measured glass data and study fiber-weave's impact on differential insertion loss and other s-parameters in the case of weak and strong-coupled transmission lines. This paper would also describe challenges that designer might face while trying to design a clean high-speed channel link.
