SerDes Toolbox™ provides a MATLAB® and Simulink® model library and a set of analysis tools and apps for the design and verification of serializer/deserializer (SerDes) systems.
With the SerDes Designer app, you can use statistical analysis to rapidly design wired communications transmitters and receivers. The app provides MATLAB based parameterized models and algorithms that let you explore a wide range of equalizer configurations and generate eye diagrams to assess performance metrics.
With building blocks such as CTLE, DFE, FFE, and CDR, you can describe your chosen architecture and simulate control and adaptation algorithms. White-box examples of typical applications such as PCIe, USB, Ethernet, and DDR provide reference designs that you can use as a basis for your own designs.
SerDes Toolbox supports automatic generation of dual IBIS-AMI models. These models can be used with third-party channel simulators for system integration and verification.
This example shows how to use the SerDes Designer app to create and analyze a SerDes system, and create the IBIS-AMI models for the transmitter and receiver from Simulink®.
