eMagin Corp. restates results News & Analysis 3/28/2005 Post a comment Display IP supplier eMagin Corp. announced Monday (March 28) it would file an amended Form 10-QSB for its third 2004 fiscal quarter ended Sept. 30, 2004, to reflect restated financial results for that quarter.
"Failsafe" clocking mechanism offers clock switchover Product News 3/25/2005 Post a comment Micrel's SY8984x series of high bandwidth 2:1 multiplexers prevent short cycles ("runt pulses") when switching from one clock to another. Such a feature is important in data center and other mission-critical applications, in which a cough or short-cycle could result in false data triggers. While a number of manufacturers promote this form of clock switching, Micrel's architecture may be unique in that it does not rely on a phased-locked loop (PLL).
Addition by subtraction News & Analysis 3/21/2005 Post a comment National's interest in selling off its super I/O business was basically applauded by Ross Seymore of Deutsche Bank's Equity Research Group. The sale allows National to concentrate on its high margin analog efforts. Here's the text of Seymore's remarks.
Metalink unveils 100 Mbit/s VDSL chipset News & Analysis 3/17/2005 Post a comment Metalink Ltd. has announced the commercial availability of a new generation of VDSL transceivers capable of transmitting both upstream and downstream at rates of 100 Mbps at distances over 200 meters.
Freescale's Mayer sees single-digit growth News & Analysis 3/15/2005 Post a comment The semiconductor industry can expect at best single-digit growth in the coming years because no industry can "outgrow the GDP," the chief executive of Freescale Semiconductor said Tuesday (March 15) at the Semico Summit here.
Bring Speed and Accuracy to 4-Port Models of 40-Gb/s Differential Structures Design How-To 3/9/2005 Post a comment Moving data at 40-Gb/s over copper is no longer a theoretical exercise; it has become a reality. For physical-layer structuresthe passive linear components, backplanes, IC packages, cables and connectorsare no longer the bottlenecks in high-speed digital systems. In this feature article, authors Jim Mayrand, Mike Resso of Agilent Technologies, and Dima Smolyansky of TDA Systems explore recent advances in 4-port instrumentation that now enable designers to accurately model 40-Gb/s dif
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.
January 2016 Cartoon Caption ContestBob's punishment for missing his deadline was to be tied to his chair tantalizingly close to a disconnected cable, with one hand superglued to his desk and another to his chin, while the pages from his wall calendar were slowly torn away.122 comments
