Spec drives USB to 300 Mbytes/s and beyond Product News 11/17/2008 1 comment The widely used USB interface officially gets an upgrade to a version 3.0 at a developers' conference where a handful of companies are expected to announce product plans for the new spec with data rates that could hit 400 Mbytes/second.
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.
