SerDes chip enables integration of multiple video streams Design How-To 11/18/2011 2 comments In a parking assist system example, single twisted-pair communication and an interface chipset provide a bidirectional control channel with a minimum latency and general purpose I/O functionality, enabling seamless frame-synchronous processing of individual video data streams.
IEEE to define 25 Gbit optical interfaces News & Analysis 11/8/2011 1 comment The IEEE has kicked off a study group to define 25 Gbit/second optical interfaces for next-generation 100 Gbit Ethernet networks replacing today's 10Gbit/s building blocks.
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.
