High-density, extended temperature FPGAs claim slots in automotive apps Product News 2/27/2004 Post a comment Almost every car that comes off the assembly line will make use of occupant safety systems, electronic engine control modules for camless engine control units (ECUs) and other under-the-hood powertrain management systems. But high end automotive electronics like navigation, speech recognition, passenger control and comfort systems, intelligent occupant sensors and heads-up displays may not have the volumes that justify an investment in ASICs. Here, the densities, features, and extended temperatu
Your click counts Blog 2/25/2004 Post a comment Steve Ohr is nothing if not enthusiastic about publishing engineering design articles and showcasing new products on the web, and then counting the clicks they generate. "It puts you in touch with your readers," he suggests. But just think what an online product showcase can do in conjunction with a new tradeshow venue.

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.
