PAM4 Signal Modulation — No Pain, No Gain; with Ransom Stephens
Date: 1/15/2016
More information and registration
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.

One of Silicon Valley's great contributions has been how its application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with innovations in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has little taste for risk and has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Join Peter Clarke in a conversation about silicon startups, in conjunction with launch of EE Times' Silicon 60 2015.

A handful of new or emerging network technologies are competing to becoming the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power consumption than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Proponents of a handful of the leading contenders will make the case why they think they will be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Listeners will get a clear sense of the various metro and national networks they could use to connect their IoT systems, how they differ from each other, their trade offs, their current deployments and outlook.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
