Show synopsis More than ever, maximizing the performance of digital systems means maximizing the performance of the high-speed connections amongst their components. Digital Signal Integrity gives engineers all the theory and methods they need to accurately model and simulate high-speed interconnections, and to predict performance levels accurately, so they can get products to market faster, and with greater reliability. High-speed digital systems are now so fast that their design requires detailed system-level simulations with accurate interconnect models. Digital Signal Integrity is the first comprehensive guide to the theory and techniques engineers need to build these models. The book includes especially detailed coverage of inductance, capacitance, resistance, single and multiconductor transmission lines, generalized termination schemes, crosstalk, and differential signaling. Digital Signal Integrity also includes systematic coverage of multiconductor interconnects. It presents the most approachable introduction to modal decomposition available, helping engineers understand the outputs achieved by commercial modeling software. All techniques and methods are supported by a strong mathematical foundation that provides real depth of understanding, and over 100 end-of-chapter problems are provided.
