Sensitivity analysis of a high-speed interconnect
The PCE workflow proposed in this paper can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of link design and validation. It extends compliance checks with additional information on the significance of design parameters and quantifies the consequences of their uncertainty. The paper goes into detail on the following topics:
Introduction to commonly used performance metrics and methods of uncertainty quantification in high-speed link design with a particular focus on PCE and ST
The main two aspects of the proposed modeling framework: first, extending an open-source PCE library by ST, and second, the set up of a sensitivity-aware channel model
Explore the similarities of PCE and RSM to propose a compound, computationally efficient, and self-validating surrogate model.
