S parameters for Signal and Power Integrity

Background

In recent years, S parameters have become an integral part of signal and power integrity design, analysis, simulation, failure investigation, compliance, sign-off and measurements of high-speed digital interfaces. This course focuses on the practical side of S parameters and includes dozens of examples from simulations and measurements. Many high-frequency phenomena are studied and the way they are expressed in S parameters. The engineers will acquire the powerful S parameters tool for signal integrity design, while managers will acquire a powerful tool for testing signal integrity in a very short time.

 

The topics include:

• Extensive S parameters practice and theory

• Design, analysis and measurement of PCB and package high-speed elements using S parameters

• Dozens of examples from simulations and network analyzer measurements 

• Proof of design and failure investigation using S parameters

• Familiarizing with S parameters simulation and measurement tools.

• Defining how much reflection, attenuation, xtalk and mode-conversion is too much by using S

   parameters

• Briefing on data sheets and common specifications

Presenter

Dror Haviv received his Master of Science (M.Sc) degree in electrical engineering with honors from the Electromagnetic and Microwave program at Ben-Gurion University (Beer-Sheva, Israel). He is one of Israel’s leading Signal and Power Integrity (SI/PI) engineers and has years of design, analysis, measurement, and teaching experience in the signal integrity field behind him.

Today, Dror serves as a senior signal integrity technical expert at Mobileye Vision Technologies signal and power integrity team.  Between 2020 to 2023, he served as a signal and power integrity Technical lead at Western Digital ASIC platform engineering organization. His job duties included ASIC SI/PI design, silicon die and package co-design, modeling, system level SI/PI simulations and correlation analysis.

2010-2019, Dror served as signal integrity focal point and architect with Rafael’s R&D division. As a signal integrity architect, he designed, analyzed, simulated, and measured dozens of systems and PCBs for high-speed interfaces. As focal point, he has qualified, educated, trained, and supervised many engineers in the signal integrity field. Simultaneously, he served as a senior signal integrity cooperate researcher and has conducted several research projects in the field. His research has been presented in conferences on signal integrity, both in Israel and abroad.
