Flash Storage Alternatives for the Low-Pin-Count (LPC) Bus News & Analysis 5/3/2002 Post a comment Sharon Dagan of M-Systems discusses trends in the embedded market that
have brought about the decline of the ISA bus and its replacement by the Low Pin Count (LPC) bus. Ms. Dagan also reviews LPC bus benefits,
various storage solutions supporting the LPC bus, and a case study
showing migration from ISA to LPC bus on a thin-client platform.
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.
