Cutting Back Energy in the Data Dungeon Design How-To 5/4/2009 Post a comment While consumers and corporations alike may be getting 'greener', the biggest energy offenders may lurk in the unnoticed regions of the enterprise: the data center. Amounting to 40 percent of a data center's total cost (including operation and equipment), the opportunities and payoff for reducing the power consumption here is substantial.

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.
