GPU grid helping to find AIDS cure
The Engineering Life - Around the Web  
12/1/2012   1 comment
Scientists in Barcelona have been using GPUs to process the protein strains of the virus, in the hopes of eventually finding a way to stop it replicating.

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.
