AMI (Algorithmic Modeling Interface) has become the industry standard for modeling and simulating SerDes transmitter and receiver behaviors. It includes equalization, and CDR (Clock Data Recovery) used for PCIe, USB, and Ethernet applications. It also helps SerDes design engineers to simulate their system quickly and accurately to determine BER (Bit Error Rate) and Eye Density. However, it is typically a challenging task to build an accurate AMI model that describes complex silicon. In this webinar, we show an easy-to-use workflow using PathWave ADS.
