Tutorial II

High-Speed Next Generation SI Challenges
Bhyrav Mutnury, Dell

Abstract - In this invited guest lecture Dr. Bhyrav Mutnury will talk about the challenges associated with high-speed signal integrity (SI) as it becomes exponentially complex with the doubling of signal speeds every generation. In this presentation, high-speed server design is used as an example to demonstrate the next generation SI challenges and potential opportunities to overcome these challenges. The presentation also discusses impact of loss, reflections and crosstalk on high-speed designs and ways to mitigate these parasitic effects.

Bhyrav Mutnury received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, in 2002, and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering, in 2005 from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA. He is a Senior Distinguished Engineer and Global SI Leader at Infrastructure Solutions Group at Dell Technologies where he is responsible for storage, network, rack, and blade server designs. He is driving the next generation high-speed interfaces and modeling methodologies at Dell. He has more than 21 years of progressive experience in system design with strong focus on electrical modeling, analysis and optimization of complex high speed servers.

Dr. Mutnury has authored and co-authored more than 80 refereed publications in various IEEE and non IEEE conferences. He has filed more than 180 invention disclosures. He is an IEEE Fellow and the recipient of IEEE EMC Technical Achievement Award.
