The Single Pulse Response demonstrates the impact a channel has on a single pulse. It reveals a lot of information about the behavior of interconnects, including channel loss, reflections and performance of the equalization. Unlike an eye diagram, which gives you final insight into the margin you have available, the Single Pulse Response is a diagnostic method to extract the information you need to improve your margin. In this session, you will learn about simulating the SPR method with Keysight’s Advanced Design System (ADS 2017), analyzing the result in both time and frequency domain, and how it can be applied to modern PAM4 signaling challenges.
