Printed circuit board (PCB) design begin with the development of the signal integrity (SI) guidelines to ensure adequate performance of the final product. Optimization routines have been well proven to aid analysis across a variety of common tasks, such as determining the optimal values for circuit parameters. Signal integrity engineering involves the development of design guidelines for impedance control, termination, attenuation, and isolation. Optimization routine engineering automate the process of tuning parametric values to achieve desired performance. Optimization routines is also applicable in the development of the equivalent circuit models of various passive interconnect. Interconnect performance is measured in the lab in either time or frequency domain. Based on the measured performance and knowledge of the physical structure, a circuit topology is generated to approximate the measured performance.
