MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Opti Inc. late today announced it has filed a patent infringement suit against National Semiconductor Corp. over bus-interface chip technology. The suit, filed in the Northern District of California, claims that National has infringed on two of Opti's U.S. patents. The patents in question involve chips that incorporate Opti's "low-pin-count interface specification" technology.

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.
