1394b chipset doubles data speed between PCs and peripherals
Product News  
6/1/2006   Post a comment
The speed at which information can be moved between PCs and 1394b peripherals, such as high-performance external hard disk drives, can be doubled using the latest chipset from Agere Systems.

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.
