Repeater is a good solution for 10G over-spec. application
Standard IBIS-AMI models can be used for modeling repeaters. No additional change in IBIS-AMI expression
The IBIS-AMI models must contain all repeater functionally like EQ, linear/limiting, DE, VOD, DFE, CDR and so on. Accurate IBIS-AMI models are important for analysis results
EDA tools can handle the cascading of multiple channels during simulation
Knowledge about repeater help select parameters more efficiently. Simulation is a good assistance
