HMC 15G-SR Compliance Kit

Characterize and validate the performance of an HMC 15G-SR channel design.

This kit is designed for analysis of an interface between a host ASIC and a Cube. The total channel length between devices is approximately 10 inches. The kit has sheets that represent network characterization for insertion and return loss testing and both single channel and multi-bit channel simulation sheets to measure BER compliance and RX stress testing.

This kit enables you to insert a channel design and characterize and validate its performance using the specification masks to determine if the channel has a “high confidence” of success. If the channel does not meet the compliance masks or BER estimates, further investigation or redesign, along with simulation, will need to be performed to determine possible changes to meet compliance.

Open HMC 15G-SR Kit

Open the HMC 15G-SR kit in the Serial Link Designer app using the openSignalIntegrityKit function.



Kit Overview

  • Project Name: HMC_15G_SR

  • Interface Name: HMC_15G_SR

  • Operating Frequency: 15 Gb/s (UI = 66.67 ps) default setting. 10 Gb/s and 12.5 Gb/s can be selected.

The HMC 15G-SR kit defines one schematic set. The masks provided in this kit are given in the 15 Gb/s HMC-15G-SR specification.

  • Set1 — Contains all project schematics
