Silicon photonics, I like this! Hope this "gradual changes" can be shorter so faster chips with higher computation power can be developed.

Good summary of an important topic at DesignCon as we go to higher rates. We can fiddle with various combinations of linear equalizers (FIR, CTLE) and DFEs to reconstitute a signal, but as the data rates go up, the power and cost of clock and data recovery to up also, to a point that jumping to photonic paths becomes a necessity. Of course, we hope that while we're pushing the limits of linear equalizers and DFEs to their max, that the cost of silicon photonics comes down -- way down -- in the meantime. Great topic! Thanks Dylan.
