Xilinx CEO on 'programmable imperative' EET Videos 2/2/2009 Post a comment Moshe Gavrielov, president and CEO of programmable logic supplier Xilinx, makes the case that market and technology forces have finally aligned to create a tipping point whereby FPGAs are displacing traditional ASICs for many applications.
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.
