How to Avoid Poor Serdes Performance Caused By Circuit Board Manufacturing Variances

Validating prototype circuit boards gives you a level of confidence, but variances in manufacturing processes are just as likely to erode that confidence right along with the transfer speeds on high-speed serdes traces. Find out about the many causes of process variations, their effects and, most importantly, what you can do detect variances before they take a costly toll. You will learn:

  • The causes of manufacturing variances and their effects
  • How to validate serdes performance during volume manufacturing
  • How to avoid warranty returns and repair costs later
  • How selective margining and BER testing detects variances
