Plug & Play Signal Integrity
Altera’s Stratix® II GX family of FPGAs, with Plug & Play Signal Integrity technology, help deliver the best system BER performance and allow you to design truly universal cards that can plug into multiple slots in a high-speed backplane system. This webcast will review high-speed protocol trends as well as the challenges facing high-speed backplane designers. We’ll conclude with a short video about how Altera’s Plug & Play Signal Integrity can help you with your backplane designs using multi-gigabit transceivers. View Now


Learn About High-Speed Clocking Architecture and Oscillator Selection for FPGAs
In high-speed or wide-bus interfaces, such as gigabit transceiver or high-speed memory interfaces, room for clock uncertainties and variations is small. Unfortunately, we live in a world where clock oscillators do have frequency variations and are exposed to jitter. This net seminar covers various clock network topologies for FPGAs as well as a detailed discussion of jitter, its components and causes. Finally, guidelines are provided for how to select the right oscillator for your high speed design. View Now


Learn Power Delivery Network (PDN) Best Design Practices for High-Speed Boards
The power delivery network (PDN) is a critical design component in board designs, especially for high-speed systems. A robust PDN is required to achieve a high level of system signal integrity. In this net seminar, the SI Doctor, Dr. Eric Bogatin, provides detailed practical strategies for achieving low PDN impedance. Dr. Bogatin covers voltage regulator modeling and simulations and techniques to estimate and achieve PDN target impedance. He also provides a close look at profiles and the proper selection of decoupling capacitors. View Now
