Vitesse Semiconductor, LeCroy Corporation and Wild River Technology to Present at DesignCon 2012

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), LeCroy Corporation and Wild River Technology will present a jointly prepared paper titled “A Robust method for Addressing 12Gbpsec Interoperability for High-Loss and Crosstalk Aggressed Channels,” at DesignCon 2012 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif., on Tuesday, January 31, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. local time.

During the session, engineers involved with signal integrity design and backplane characterization with system interoperability issues related to crosstalk and channel loss will learn about a new methodology, which will be demonstrated on 10.7 Gbps measured systems. It involves synthesizing a perfect SerDes architecture, simulating responses with a host of pathological channels using S-parameter models, and then performing a final co-verification using internal eye monitoring metrics.

“As data rates increase, high speed serial channels are stressed by more than just excessive losses,” said Dr. Eric Bogatin, president of Bogatin Enterprises. “They are also stressed by channel-to-channel cross talk. The challenge is integrating cross talk pathology into serial link analysis. Our DesignCon presentation will outline a solution to this problem.”

Coauthored by James Bell and Al Neves of Wild River Technology, Alan Blankman from LeCroy Corporation, Eric Bogatin, founder of Bogatin Enterprises, and Martin Spadaro and George Noh of Vitesse, the paper will be presented by Messrs. Spadaro, Blankman and Neves.

DesignCon is an annual conference on product technologies, design methodologies, and EDA software, with a focus on system-on-chip design. For additional information: www.designcon.com.

About Bogatin Enterprises

Training from Bogatin Enterprises teaches how to turn complex signal integrity problems into practical design solutions. We accelerate engineers up the learning curve by strengthening engineering intuition. Our classes illustrate how analysis and measurement tools can be used to quickly and efficiently solve signal integrity problems. The design methodology we teach emphasizes eliminating problems by identifying their root cause and designing them out early in the design cycle. Analysis techniques are applied to balance the cost performance tradeoffs. Risk can be reduced by leveraging simulation tools and measurement using TDR and VNA instruments. For 20 years, Bogatin Enterprises has been setting the standard for signal integrity training. Company information is available at www.beTheSignal.com.
