Walter,You are misinterpreting my picture. I was showing the network of just a Tx or Rx. When I say "network" I truly mean a circuit network. Let me create a better picture of the entire channel.
TxTerm --- TxDie --- TxBump -- TxPkg -- channel -- RxPkg -- RxBump -- RxDie --- RxTerm
| | | |TxPad RxPad
For a 50 ohm single-ended channel TxTerm = 50 ohm RxTerm = 50 ohm TxPad = some high impedance RxPad = some high impedance Lumped approximations between TxTerm/TxPad and RxTerm/RxPad do not hold What I was showing was just one part of the total channel. (50 ohm)RxBump --- Network --- RxTerm (50 ohm) | | RxPad (10k ohm) The signal seen at RxPad is significantly different than RxTerm. I hope this better clarifies my question. regards, Scott On 5/27/2010 6:14 PM, Walter Katz wrote:
Scott, Your picture is incorrect: 1 --- Network --- 3 | | 2 It is reallyTx_Pad --- Network --- Rx_Pad --- Input_to_Equalization --- Output_of_EqualizationThere is a high impedance connection between ports Rx_Pad and Input_to_Equalization.This should answer your question.

In the case where a driver or a receiver is terminated at the end of the line, the termination impedance is obvious. So, for a 100 ohm differential system the differential impedance used for impulse response extraction is 100 ohms. Essentially the high-impedance receiver amplifier, or driver current sources are considered to be lumped at the termination network.How are people modeling, extracting, and simulating drivers and receivers where the high-impedance ports are physically isolated from the termination, where the waveform in the algorithmic domain (driver/receiver) is substantially different than the waveform in the analog domain at the termination? I'm confused, since IBIS-AMI does not include the on-die termination network, except in the rudimentary and unsatisfying form of a *.ibs model, and that model is a lumped approximation. In my mind, in order to correctly extract an impulse response of a channel that will give a correct representation of the waveform at the receiver, one has to either perform a transient simulation of the full circuit from the driver to the receiver, or perform frequency domain modeling to impulse response transformations with known driver/receiver input impedance. Otherwise, the resulting impulse response is wrong.For a hypothetical 50 ohm single-ended transmitter or receiver, the simplest circuit that can correctly model many transmitters and receivers is the following network:1 --- Network --- 3 | | 2 where: Port 1 = 50 ohm Port 3 = 50 ohm Port 2 = some high impedance.and Port 1 to Port 2 is the path used for computation of the impulse responseIf the Network is lumped into: 1 --- Network --- 2The resulting impulse response and waveform is different. How are people solving this problem?regards, Scott -- Scott McMorrow Teraspeed Consulting Group LLC 121 North River Drive Narragansett, RI 02882 (401) 284-1827 Business (401) 284-1840 Faxhttp://www.teraspeed.com Teraspeed® is the registered service mark ofTeraspeed Consulting Group LLC
