This paper introduces a co-simulation and optimization approach for a multi-stage end-to-end link containing both electrical and optical components, operating at 112Gbps in PAM4 signaling. The details of IBIS-AMI modeling for both electrical and optical components are presented. The simulation platform is composed of three active components, from the host electrical SerDes TX to optical TX, from optical TX to optical RX, and from optical RX to the host electrical SerDes RX. Case study simulations with a commercial EDA tool are described, with the goal of achieving global BER optimization instead of only local optimization.
