Ransom StephensSignal Integrity SageRansom's Notes

Dr. Ransom Stephens has been helping engineers advance to technology’s cutting edge since 2005. Whether in person or through articles, white papers, application notes, Ransom teaches engineers the concepts they need to design better systems, better circuits, better serdes, better backplanes, and better ways to find problems and come up with solutions. Ransom started out in in basic-research; he worked in laboratories and universities across the United States and Europe specializing in precise measurements of noisy signals before moving to the private sector, first as the Director of Advanced Tech at a startup and now as a Signal Integrity Sage. He is the author of over four-hundred articles in the electronics industry, science journals, and magazines on subjects ranging from the analysis of electrodynamics in high-rate digital systems to popular science. Ransom uses his expertise in signal integrity analysis of electrical and optical systems to introduce new measurement techniques, invent methods for extracting signals from noise, lead teams of engineers, and serve on the electrical working groups for several high data rate standards.
