Harvested energy unleashed News & Analysis 12/15/2008 Post a comment For many, the concept of energy harvesting is tightly associated with the 'green' movement. While that's certainly one aspect, it overlooks a whole range of applications that have less to do with solving the world's so-called energy crisis and more to do with solving the problem of powering remote or embedded devices -- indefinitely. That is, without wires and without potentially expensive battery replacement, thereby truly cutting the wire.
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.
