Many designs uses SERDES interfaces to move data. While SERDES designs need to meet many requirements in order to work correctly, however, many issues that can be avoided by a careful PCB designing process still exist due to human mistakes or limited placement and routing resources, and can be hardly found by a manual review process.

This paper reports on common layout requirements related to SERDES designs, and how HyperLynx DRC can help identify issues on PCB boards that violate these requirements.
