Hardware Verification with C++ Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 2/12/2007 Post a comment Much to my surprise, I spent my weekend curled up with a really good book on hardware verification with C++ by Mike Mintz and Robert Ekendahl.
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.
