Signal Integrity for High-Speed Digital Design 
(40 HOURS OF VIDEO LECTURES)


About this course

Signal integrity is the practice of ensuring sufficient fidelity of a signal transmitted between a driver and a receiver for proper functioning of the circuit, e.g., the signals over the high-speed bus between a processor and its chip-set. The integrity of a signal in real-world applications is compromised by artifacts of the layout of the circuits on a printed circuit board, the type of IC package being used, and is impacted by the circuit logic family, power delivery network, and other aspects of high-speed digital design. These non-ideal, real-world effects can lead to severely distorted voltage and current waveforms and signal jitter, and result in faulty switching and logic errors. This course gives engineers the necessary skills to ensure signal quality for practical designs using a combination of standard design practices as well as commercial CAD tools.

DVDs include videos of class lectures and experimental demonstrations, as well as course notes, assignments, assignment solutions, and practice exams. Watching the videos, doing the homework, and working through the exams should give you the same learning experience as our senior and graduate students at Missouri S&T.

Signal Integrity Course Objectives

  • Introduce fundamental signal integrity concepts;
  • Learn the basic skills necessary to design and analyze high-speed digital products;
  • Develop the ability to diagnose and solve signal integrity problems in “real-world” applications;
  • Expand knowledge of good engineering practices and improve physical understanding.
