Reference board speeds IC-based flyback design News & Analysis 7/7/2004 Post a comment International Rectifier's IRISMPS5 is a reference design for a flyback topology that uses the company's versatile and efficient IRIS4015 integrated switcher IC. The reference design, i.e., a universal-input AC/DC supply that delivers 6 amps at 15 volts, is suited to powering such systems as LCD monitors, CD/DVD players, fax machines, printers and set-top boxes.
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.
