Students build a really cool computer Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/31/2007 Post a comment Not exactly a "micro" -- this beast comprises nine square feet of prototype boards, sixty yards of wire, seventy-nine LEDs, and fifty-three integrated circuits.
Do NOT press that big red button! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/25/2007 Post a comment While giving a tour of a data center, a manager flipped what he thought was a light switch; sadly, this turned out to be an ill-placed control for an entire bank of servers...
A positive plethora of cool websites! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/17/2007 Post a comment Here are some cool sites that have crossed my desk in the last couple of days, from transistor museums to the dangers of using restrooms to the horrors of Wii.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
