Thank you for all the great comments following the release of this textbook.
Like many others, we are passionate about the field of signal integrity. Some of the issues we address in this book cover areas not necessarily addressed by other resources, such as:
How jitter impact varies depending on different clocking architecture, how to simulate simultaneous switching noise (SSN) within a reasonable simulation time, how to analyze various jitter with conventional channel analysis, different systematic ways to measure jitter in 3D packaging systems, and what some of the pitfalls are in modeling lossy transmission lines.
While SI has been around for decades, we felt there was a need to pull together this collection of materials to help provide a single source on the various topics related to signal integrity.
We appreciate the comments and look forward to continuing the conversation.
Looks like collective Wisdom developed over several years, on SI is being shared to a larger audience by the means of the book "High-Speed Signaling: Jitter Modeling, Analysis, and Budgeting". It is wise to learn from experienced minds
Let it benefit the Electrical Engineering Community
Would like to know more about this subject. Not sure if this is anything related to the need of RF knowledge in high speed digital design. In other words, digital is no more 1 and 0 when the speed goes up. With poor design a 1 can easily be seen as 0.
I agree with those who say that SI is NOT new. The concepts themselves have been around for many years. As tools evolve we are able to analyze circuits and understand how we can shave a little more performance out of them by pushing the limits harder. It would be interesting to get this book and see what tips they have that might be useful.
SI is not some new fangled specialization that this article would have you believe. There are excellent textbooks on this matter for at least the last 10 years e,g. see the one by Eric Bogatin who used to be at Sun Micro Systems and has been doing it for 20 years.
