System specs key to SoC success News & Analysis 9/13/2001 Post a comment A major cause of failure in the design of silicon systems is incorrect or ambiguous specification. It is necessary to capture system specifications in an executable, unambiguous format in order to achieve agreement early on in a concurrent hardware/software design process between customer/provider and the various design teams.
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.
