The course is taught in English. The aggressive miniaturization of current and future generation electronic and communication systems, such as smartphones and tablets, combining different functions (digital, analog and RF, optical, bio-sensors, MEMS, etc.) in a very compact volume, poses tremendous design challenges. Unwanted interactions between different system parts may lead to performance degradation and malfunctioning, unless proper design strategies are applied to guarantee the Signal and Power Integrity of the system. This course provides a fundamental understanding of main signal/power deterioration causes, as well as suitable strategies aimed at robust system design and reliability.

The student attending the course will learn how to - understand the main mechanisms of signal and power deterioration in electronic systems - analyze qualitatively and quantitatively and provide simple models for most common signal/power integrity issues - apply design methods and tools to maximize system reliability

Introduction to signal and power integrity aware design. Modeling and simulation approaches. Physical description, models, and design rules for electrical interconnects. Signal integrity effects: crosstalk and losses. Robust signaling schemes. Shielding and twisting. Power distribution systems and power integrity at chip, package and board level. Electromagnetic interference and radiation. Immunity. Shielding and Grounding.

The course includes problem and lab sessions.
Assuming that all course activities will take place in presence, the course structure is as follows. About 60% of the time is dedicated to in-class lectures by the course instructors. The material presented during the lectures, including examples, will be assessed in the written part of the exam. The remaining 40% is dedicated to problem and lab sessions, mostly conducted in a hardware lab. Students will be conducting a number of experiments in groups of three. Each experiment will lead to a written report that will contribute to the final exam. In case of remote delivery of the course, lectures will be live and recordings will be made available on the web portal. In case labs cannot be carried out in presence, individual and/or group projects will be assigned and will replace the corresponding lab reports.

ModalitÓ di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Elaborato scritto individuale;
Exam: Written test; Individual essay;
... Written test completed by an Oral exam. Possible homeworks in substitution of the written exam
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilitÓ o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'UnitÓ Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione pi¨ idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Written test; Individual essay;
The exam includes a Lab report and a written test. The written test consists in 5 problems (6 points each) to be solved in 90 min, open book and use of electronic calculators allowed. The Lab activity is evaluated by means of a lab report (18 points, of which 12 points measure the technical content and 6 points the quality of the report (structure, language, figures, etc)) and an oral presentation of the lab experience in front of the class (12 points, measuring the technical content and the presentation clarity). The final score of the course is the average of the points earned by the student in written and lab parts of the exam. Should a student be unable to attend the lab (e.g., because of his/her period abroad), the activity will be replaced by a project that can be handled remotely.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
