NO RATINGS
I enjoying reading books about the history of technology - one of the best in recent years is "The Victorian Internet" -- the invention of the telegraph. When the first message was sent, people were saying "Oh no - information 24/7!! Infomration overload!!"  LOL.

good suggestion for some history lessons with a pinch of science or other way around (i do not know yet). Does the book also have some interview quotes (like that of Penny LeCouteur) to get some expert opinions to segregate facts from fiction? I would like to know.

Excellent book--enough science to intrigue the average engineer, but not so much that you couldn't read the whole book in a long day.

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.
