Wherefore art thou oh 60GHz? RF & Microwave Designline Blog 11/22/2010 14 comments After three years, WirelessHD and the vaunted 60GHz bandwagon hasn’t gone anywhere. Moreover, it hasn’t showed up in any other interesting applications either. Why? It isn’t because it can’t be made to work.
MIPI M-PHY takes center stage Design How-To 11/14/2010 Post a comment The curtain is up and the M-PHY specification is taking center stage, positioned to handle the many different roles required for a faster, more reliable, physical interface layer (PHY Layer) on mobile devices.
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.
