In this presentation, we will first review where the
technology is heading for multiple Gb/s high-speed
links or I/O buses for networks and computer devices and
systems. Then we will discuss why jitter and signal
integrity have become the major challenges, as well as
limiting factors for developing those high-speed and high-performance link devices and systems. Finally, we will
cover the testing requirements and associated testing
methodologies for jitter and signal integrity from a generic
perspective, as well as from a practical application
perspective, with examples of PCI Express and FB DIMM
jitter and signal integrity testing.
- Speaker Biography:
Dr. Mike Li is the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with
Wavecrest. Dr. Li pioneered a jitter-separation method
(Tailfit) and the DJ, RJ, and TJ concept and theory
formation. Currently he is Co-Chair for the PCI Express
jitter standards committee. Dr. Li has more than 15 years
of high-speed-related measurement instrumentation,
testing, and analysis experience in applications including IC,
microprocessor, clock and serial data communications for
electrical, optical and wireless communication. He holds
a BS in physics from the University of Science and Technology
of China, a MSE in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. in
physics from University of Alabama in Huntsville. He did his
postdoc at University of California, Berkeley and worked
there as a research scientist on high-energy astrophysics
before he joined industry. Dr Li has published more than
70 papers in refereed technical journals, holds 4
patents and has 8 patents pending, and authored/edited one
book on multiple Gb/s design and test.
