10-Gbits/s dual clock data recovery PHY aimed at short-reach XFP apps Product News 8/1/2006 Post a comment AMCC has developed the S19256 dual clock data recovery PHY chip for use in short-reach and intermediate reach XFP modules. The S19256 is approximately 30% lower in cost than its sister device, the S19233, which is tailored for long-haul applications. It is also designed with a built-in equalizer to mitigate data-dependent jitter generated during the transmission of signals in FR-4 material.
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.
