In serial links, signal is generated, transmitted, and shaped by link components, such as drivers, channels, and equalizers. Likewise, noises, e.g. reference clock phase noises, power supply noise …etc., go through the same transforming processes. In <25Gbps links, while jitter, i.e. timing noises, is extensively studied and modeled, other noises, except channel crosstalk, are mostly neglected because NRZ links are usually constrained by timing budget. In >50Gbps PAM4 links, which are constrained in both timing and amplitude budgets, accurate noise modeling becomes critical in accessing link margins. In this paper, we will explain noise characteristics and investigate noise modeling techniques.
The audience will gain the knowledge on noise source and characteristics within high-speed serial links as well as modeling techniques.
For audience with knowledge on high-speed serial links, jitter and noise components, and equalization schemes in serial communication links.
