@Garcia: Happy Independence Day for all the American people around ;-)

Thanks Javi -- even though I'm English, since I live in America I still celebrate the 4th July -- unfortunately one of our dogs hates fireworks, so this is always a traumatic day for her (sad face).

@Betajet LOL....Winston Churchill had a gift for putting thiings in a short and pithy but very clear fashion.  A bit cynical, some would say,  but as another great Briton, George Bernard Shaw remarked:

"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it."

On a serious note, it is encouraging to see manufacturing slowly returning to the US (If I read this right).   Australia is still in the process of having its manufacturing jumping or being pushed offshore.   But where the US goes, Australia often follows, so let's hope that happens in this instance as well.

Like the great Winston Churchill, who is quoted as having said: "The United States invariably does the right thing, after having exhausted every other alternative."

Happy 4th July!

Now it not requires Made in USA, it should be "Design and Made in America". Life time warranty.

I think you'll find that the proper FTC term is "Made in USA," by the way.

Well, being an EE, I have to say that electric power distribution is a pretty key innovation, no?


Happy fourth to all USA-ians, at home and overseas.

Max asked: What are your thoughts as to the best, most useful, and most unusual things that America has presented to the world?

Well, the info-thingy does show that preëminent USA contribution to the world: blue jeans (les boudjinnes in French).  But where is that other preëminent contribution, le T-shirt?

What?  You say that jeans aren't a USA invention?  That the name jeans comes from Gênes, the French name for Genoa, Italy?  And that denim (de Nîmes) comes from Nîmes, France?

Ah well, at least we still have T-shirts :-)

Muchas gracias, Javier!

There are quite a few open-minded people in the USA, but we need all the encouragement we can get :-)

Have you ever read Faster Than the Speed of Light: The Story of a Scientific Speculation by João Magueijo?  Fascinating book, both for the physics and the challenges of trying to advance a new idea in a world of orthodox thinking.  At one point Dr. Magueijo describes a certain kind of older colleagues who are particularly rigid in their thinking and notes that they are usually stone deaf as well.  He speculates that their ability to hear has atrophied through disuse.

I suppose that there are a lot of things that could be done better at the USA, but I believe it is a great country. Once upon a time, I was "fighting" with very conservative ideas and people at Spain; then I noticed that the Internet had opened a door to connecting with the people in the other side of the Atlantic Ocean... and I discovered a country of open minded scientists and innovators!

Enjoy this weekend!

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.
