It International Energy Agency (IEA) reported in May 2011 that "energy-related carbon dioxide emissions during the year of 2010 were the highest in history." In 2007, IEA estimated that standby "vampire" loads represent 1% of the world's CO2 emissions, and subsequently set out a plan to reduce standby loads to 1 W /device by 2010 and 0.5 W/device by 2013. I hope that Power 2.0 is even more aggressive than this. For most consumer devices, no -- ZERO -- standby power at all is needed. DVRs are the biggest culprits, with no "wake on lan"-style implementation for recording or software updates out of sheer laziness and faux cost reduction (c.f. impact of CO2 emissions on the planet). Get with it, Power 2.0, and push for a substantial reduction in standby power. And I hope the tech press keeps their feet to the global warming fire!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
