Key design objectives for high-speed digital systems are signal integrity and power integrity. Problems associated with signal and power integrity can be diagnosed and addressed in Ansys SIwave. SIwave is used for signal integrity, crosstalk, power integrity, and electromagnetic interference (EMI) analysis of chips, packages, and boards. To transfer large amounts of data within and across server systems at high speeds, many engineering challenges need to be solved. For instance, high-speed digital channels need to be optimized for server boards to transfer signals with low latency. A signal integrity simulation of a server system can assess these problems and provide significant insights into the channel’s performance. In this course, we’ll learn how to configure one such communication channel on a server motherboard and run a signal integrity simulation in Ansys SIwave.

Antennas are the means of communication that can transmit as well as receive signals. The communication distance depends not only on the operating frequency band but also on the design characteristics of the radiating element. Out of all the available antenna types, patch antennas can be compact and of low profile while having required radiation capabilities. However, certain applications like 5G, ADAS, V2X require these patch antennas implemented in array for having more directional gain, impedance bandwidth, beam steering capability, etc. In this AIC module, we are going to detail microstrip patch and its array as a method of design.
