Book Excerpt: How to engineer EM circuits Design How-To 5/1/2012 6 comments Designed for use by microwave engineers, this 300-page text entitled Numerical Methods for Engineering: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Computational Electromagnetics teaches how to create the necessary computer code to engineer antennas, microwave circuits, and other applications using EM fields and waves.
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.
