What happened to the 42V auto? Automotive DesignLine Blog 2/10/2006 Post a comment Why didn't this prediction materialize? More puzzling, how have the dire problems, that were predicted if we stayed with 12V systems, been avoided?
Heat sinks cool BGAs in low air flow Product News 2/2/2006 Post a comment Advanced Thermal Solutions has introduced maxiFLOW heat sinks for cooling BGAs and other hot components in restricted air-flow conditions. Available in a wide range of sizes, these heat sinks are said to reduce device junction temperatures by more than 40 percent below temperatures achieved by using other heat sinks.
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.
