Chapter 9. Fast Time-Domain Channel Simulation Techniques

Jihong Ren, Sam Chang, and Dan Oh

Statistical link simulation flow (described in Chapter 8, “Link BER Modeling and Simulation”) provides an efficient way to predict link performance with device jitter. However, it has the following limitations:

• It assumes a white data pattern (or true random bit patterns), in order to calculate ISI PDF efficiently by convolution of pre- and post-ISI cursors (as explained in Section 8.3.1). This assumption is invalid when there is coding.

• Jitter modeling in the statistical domain usually assumes small jitter or a white jitter spectrum. This assumption is not valid in some cases, such as large sinusoidal jitter.

• It assumes that the system response ...
