I love the caption contest. My personal favorite is: AbramsonCraig: "Yes, this is the version of the SHARC that has an ARM in it. And a few LEGS. And a SNORKEL. "

Just speaking for myself, this comic lent itself to all kinds of interesting things that I have seen over the years.  I was excited to see Don Swaab still submitting captions.  I remember seeing his captions from when I was a young engineer reading the paper copies of EE Times.  That has been a few years.  This was a lot of fun.  I look forward to October's caption contest.

Nice choice Caleb and thanks for my "mention in dispatches".  But where is October's - it's already the 3rd  here in Australia!

I'm working on octobers! I didn't realize you were in australia. I think that might exclude you from getting a dev board from Adafruit.

@Caleb - shouldn't have opened my big mouth :-)   Send it to Max if you can.  Otherwise I'll just never talk to you again!

haha, I'll personally mail you one if that is the case. It will be fairly cheap, they're flat since you have to solder the headers on!

@MKolb: Agreed. Don was among the faithful in the golden era of print captions when all you got for your efforts was your name immortalized in the weekly newspaper. Go Don!

@Caleb....you're too kind....but really don't worry overmuch, especially if it's something your lawyers (or Karen) would frown on....   but then again, I've got stuff like that before from EET.....

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.
