This session will introduce engineers to a Python-based open-source software tool called SignalIntegrity released last year on the Python Packaging Index. This software is ideal for calculating single-ended or mixed-mode s-parameters of interconnected networks, frequency and time-domain de-embedding, and linear simulation of systems. The s-parameter viewer is also very useful for analyzing s-parameters in the time and frequency domain and for enforcing causality, reciprocity, passivity, and for resampling and other common tasks.

The session will step attendees through several use-cases, teaching how to use the tool to solve various problems and contain other educational content on s-parameters.


Attendees will learn about powerful open-source software that is available and how to use it to solve various problems (as listed above in the extended description).
