IBIS 5.0 introduced Algorithmic Modeling Interface (AMI) for modeling advanced SerDes EQs like DFE
DFE model operation can provide key insight into burst errors that can degrade BER
Error correction methods have historically been used for optical links
These methods can also be applied to electrical serial link interfaces to enhance BER
This paper examines FEC application to serial link simulation, leveraging information from AMI simulations using adaptive DFE models
