With the increasing demands for higher signal speeds coupled with the need for decreasing feature sizes, signal integrity effects such as delay, distortion, reflections, crosstalk, ground bounce and electromagnetic interference have become the dominant factors limiting the performance of high-speed systems. These effects can be diverse and can seriously impact the design performance at all hierarchical levels including integrated circuits, printed circuit boards, multi-chip modules and backplanes. This talk provides a comprehensive approach for understanding the multidisciplinary problem of signal integrity: issues/modeling/analysis in high-speed designs.

Ramachandra Achar (S’95-M’00-SM’04-FM’13) received the B. Eng. degree in electronics engineering from Bangalore University, India in 1990, M. Eng. degree in micro-electronics from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India in 1992 and the Ph.D. degree from Carleton University in 1998. Dr. Achar currently is a professor in the department of electronics engineering at Carleton University. Prior to joining Carleton university faculty (2000), he served in various capacities in leading research labs, including T. J. Watson Research Center, IBM, New York (1995), Larsen and Toubro Engineers Ltd., Mysore (1992), Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute, Pilani, India (1992) and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India (1990). His research interests include signal/power integrity analysis, EMC/EMI analysis, circuit simulation, parallel and numerical algorithms, microwave/RF algorithms, modeling/simulation methodologies for sustainable and renewable energy, and mixed-domain analysis. Dr. Achar has published over 180 peer-reviewed articles in international transactions/conferences, six multimedia books on signal integrity and five chapters in different books. Dr. Achar received several prestigious awards, including Bharat Guarav Award (2014), Carleton university research achievement awards (2010 & 2004), NSERC (Natural Science and Engineering Research Council) doctoral medal (2000), University Medal for the outstanding doctoral work (1998), Strategic Microelectronics Corporation (SMC) Award (1997) and Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC) Award (1996). He was also a co-recipient of the IEEE advanced packaging best transactions paper award (2007) and IEEE T-CPMT best transactions paper award (2013).
