Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Signal integrity analysis often involves the development of design guidelines through manual manipulation of circuit parameters and judicious interpretation of results. Such an approach can result in significant effort and sub-optimal conclusions. Optimization routines have been well proven to aid analysis across a variety of common tasks. In addition, there are several non-traditional applications where optimization can be useful. This paper begins by describing the basics of optimization followed by two specific case studies where non-traditional optimization provides significant improvements in both analysis efficiency and channel performance.
