TI's 16-bit flash MCUs eye utility meters Product News 10/4/2001 Post a comment Texas Instruments Inc. has added two models to its MSP430 line of low-power, 16-bit flash microcontrollers (MCUs) for cost-sensitive, battery-powered measurement applications such as utility meters, intelligent sensing and portable instrumentation.
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.
