This paper by Mentor Graphics’ Vladimir Dmitriev-Zdorov and Zhen Mu discusses two major issues associated with channel crosstalk that have not been fully addressed previously: models from measurements and algorithms for BER prediction.
It presents a practical solution that allows designers to add in near-end or far-end crosstalk characterized by a group of 4-port S-parameters, rather than to perform multiport parameter characterization.
The paper then presents in details two simulation approaches for channel crosstalk: synchronous and asynchronous algorithms, and considers their implementations in time and statistical domains.
Finally, it gives examples of the proposed procedures implemented together with IBIS-AMI buffer models and discusses their comparative advantages and limitations.
