ECEN 5434 - S-Parameters for Signal Integrity in High Speed Digital Engineering Course uri icon



  • Designing a robust and cost-effective product is about following a process that helps apply your engineering intuition to balance cost and design tradeoffs specific to your product. This class introduces design principles obtained by understanding S-Parameter results for complex PCB structures. Single-ended and Differential Transmission lines are analyzed and four common S-Parameter patterns are identified. Recommended prerequisite: students are expected to have completed an electromagnetics course during their undergraduate curriculum; in the CU curriculum it would be ECEN 3400.
