Thank you Ransom!
Yes, eyes diagrams measurements monthly
Hi from pdx
Great week and alot of information. Thanks, again
Fantastic Week Ransom, very informative!
The archived audio is ready now. Enjoy.
I'm off now, back to work. TTYL
By the way, those of you who joined us from Europe - I saw folks from Spain, Germany, the UK, and Holland - great to have you!
Thanks everyone, seriously, I appreciate you spending your time with us! Now enjoy Friday at work and have some fun this weekend--that magic time of the year when MLB overlaps with NFL!
With the A's on top of the AL West and the Raiders showing some tiny signs of life, I'm happy!
thanks Ransom. Awesome presentation! Thanks.
That is, stress lane 1, then turn on lanes 2, 3, 4, each with a distinct pattern and operating on separate clocks so that they're not freq locked, you'll have a real crosstalk stress.
Ah. You meant 4 x 10 Gb/s. For that system, you can stress each lane independently.
Always, but always. It's the nature of experimentation that setting up the experiment is the hardest part.
It won't be too long before we can do some kind of multi-skype thing.
Thanks Ransom it was very good look at testing.
In the field something always goes wrong!
I enjoyed this. Knowing you were out these was nice, but kind of weird not to be able to see you.
Thanks, have a nice weekend!
Ransom, is it a good idea to stress the 4x 10G signals before they're muxed in order to get a "stressed signal" at 40G? How would that stress "transfer"?
If you have an idea for a follow-on course or another course, or found something in the class really helpful, please let us know. you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sorry about the auido trouble. That must have been annoying. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a note.
I'm not aware of a single solution stress generator at 40Gb/s.
Anristu has a BERT that goes up to 32 Gb/s that applies much of the stress we talked about.
Thanks everyone. All of these are archieved, so please tell your friends and colleagues about them.
Thanks Ransom and Janine; Excellent Week series! Enjoy your Weekend!
Have a great weekend and Thank you
Audio was cutting out often today. Had to keep clicking the forward button many times.
and finally, my thanks to EE Time and Anritsu
Have a nice weekend, everybody!
Thanks Ransom your lectures were very useful
Thank you also Janine
I enjoyed the course.
Ransom, there are to my knowledge , some eye stresser out there. For instance the OPTX10 from JDS. That's an eye stresser at 10G. Do you know if there is an eye stresser for 40G out there?
Many thanks Ransom. It's been a great series.
Thanks, Ransom and Janine.
Thank you for the week long series Ransom, very interesting
Thanks Ransom & Janine.
Thanks, Ransom and Janine. Great lecture series.
A week well spent! Thanks Ransom, once again!

Hi, good morning
What's your favorite test tool in your lab, on your desk, or in your computer?
Thermal noise is a random jitter contributor.
What are real-life sources of Rj?
Also lost the audio briefly at 1227 on slide 19 but refreshed twice and its back
Which specs/components specify VEC?
click play again. it will work
No audio again
Hearing Ransom now!
ok, we're still recording. trying to fix for you
No, refresh doesn't work!

Still could not find it. Sorry. Stressed after the days work.
we currently don't use this speed of bus.
Home page had a link near the top for the "next university class" or something like that when I went to eetimes main page
EETimes is so stupid!
It is rally horrible to find the link to this EETimes University page really.
Pls try to make a link on the homepage.
have not done any eye diagrams
great donald. now we are on slide 7
Thanks. Refresh did it.
If you're joining us late, we are on slide 6
Your company's network may block the audio, you should check Or, try to refresh and audio bar should appear
audio player should appear for you at the top of this page
Good evening from Bremen, Gr
Downloaded the slides. Where's the audio?
Gack - I'm blocked on audio. Hope to be able to hear the presentation once archieved. Have a good one.
How often do you perform mask measurements or study eye diagrams?
Audio is up! Here we go last day!! Great week Ransom!!
dt has a real question... I have no idea how far we can go on PCB. Ten years ago I thought we'd be using optical interconnects by now.
My weekend plans pale by comparision.. kickboxing, visiting family, and quality time with my pillow!

Where do you envision serial data rates becoming unfeasible using FR4 substrates and copper connectors?
And, JACKO-07 Pats won! Not a pretty win, but we'll take 2-0 in the div.
Hi ALL; Good TGIF AND Friday the 13th from Boston!
(Weekend plans include RED SOX vs The YANKEES at Fenway and Mercedes Day at Larz Anderson and Sailing! )
Who has the best weekend planned?
Will I see any of you in the Blackhole on Sunday (aka, the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Complex, aka the o.co)?
Hi from PC FL.
Hi, don't forget to download today's slides.
I'm looking forward to another excellent lecture from Ransom!
Looks like the sun might come out today in Boston!!
TGIF the 13th
