SerDes Designer

Design and analyze SerDes systems for export to Simulink, MATLAB and IBIS-AMI


The SerDes Designer app generates the SerDes Designer tree required to generate IBIS-AMI models. Start from the app to develop initial SerDes architecture using statistical analysis and manage developed models.

Using this app, you can:

  • Create fully compliant IBIS (Input/Output Buffer Information Specification)-AMI (Algorithmic Modeling Interface) models and perform statistical analysis.

  • Generate MATLAB® scripts for further customization and statistical and time domain analysis.

  • Export Simulink® models for further customization, statistical and time domain analysis, and IBIS-AMI model generation.

To know more about this app, see Design SerDes System and Export IBIS-AMI Model.

SerDes Designer app

Open the SerDes Designer App

  • MATLAB Toolstrip: In the Apps tab, under Signal Processing and Communications, click the app icon.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter serdesDesigner.

Programmatic Use
