NO RATINGS
I recall seeing all kinds of hideously overdesigned hardware back in the 80's. Usually this was found in military projects where the contractor was billing outright for development time, but even in commercial work you used to see all manner of bizarre "exploits" used to avoid the dreaded "select in test" designation on a part simply because some particular parameter wasn't typically specified on the data sheet, and the mandate was "commercial spec only". It's almost comical going through these older designs trying to puzzle through which parameter they were trying to avoid having to specify!

But it's not a birthday cake without the involuntary expectorate! Too funny...I imagine patent lawyers have seen it all!

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.
