Replace your MCU's ADC with a tiny 16-bit ADC that integrates a 10ppm/C reference Design How-To 1/28/2009 Post a comment The LTC2460 ADC makes it easy to replace a microcontroller's embedded ADC with barely any additional board space. It is available in a 3mm x 3mm DFN package (as well as 12-pin MSOP package) and offers very good DC analog performance. Unlike many of the ADCs offered in microcontrollers, its linearity, offset error, and gain error are all tested and guaranteed over the full -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature range.

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.
