Stressed Jitter Analysis for Physical Link Characterization


A link-path analysis approach is introduced in this paper based on the frequency-domain S-parameters of the link path. Different jitter components are also modelled and can be injected into the analysis to characterize the link responses to different types of jitter input. Stressed link path analysis can be very useful in practical engineering designs in terms of link path optimization, device selection and qualification, etc.
