Wedge brake design boosts by-wire stopping performance Design How-To 4/6/2006 Post a comment Intelligently controlled electronic brake converts vehicle kinetic energy directly into braking energy, is faster than hydraulic brakes, requires only 10% the energy to operate, and eliminating hydraulic lines and controllers lowers system weight.
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.
