PLDs taking center stage in communications designs
News & Analysis  
6/4/2001   Post a comment
Once an engineering afterthought used as the all-purpose glue to connect other chips, programmable logic has officially moved out of the commodity ranks to be considered a strategic component of system designs.

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.
