MOST150 optimizes data bus efficiency Design How-To 5/9/2011 Post a comment The MOST150 infotainment bus system is about to take the place of earlier MOST systems. With its high bandwidth which can be utilized up to nearly 100%, MOST150 is a viable platform for advanced next-gen infotainment systems. Daimler already has gathered experience with the new bus.
Crystek rolls 2850 to 2950MHz VCO Product News 5/4/2011 Post a comment Voltage controlled oscillator operates from 2850 to 2950MHz Crystek's CVCO55CC-2850-2950 VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) operates from 2850 to 2950 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.3 to 4.7V.
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.
