What is FEC, and how do I use it?

By Cathy Liu

Looking into advanced error code correction? Many techniques involve forward error correction. But what exactly is that and how does it relate to your design? Cathy Liu spells it out in this article.


100+ Gb/s Ethernet Forward Error Correction (FEC) Analysis

By Cathy Liu

Interested in performance analysis for 100+ Gb/s per lane PAM4 interfaces? This paper takes a detailed look at high-speed serial link error propagation models and different Ethernet coding schemes as part of FEC performance analysis for 100/200/400 GbE systems with 100+ Gb/s per lane PAM4 interfaces.

Measuring and Interpreting Impedance Data

Power integrity engineers have been learning to make VRM impedance measurements to compare to the design goal or “target impedance”. Once the measurement has been performed, it’s important to be able to interpret the data. Is the result good or bad? What do I need to do to improve it? How does the impedance measurement relate to step load response and control loop stability? This webinar addresses all of these topics, providing you with the ability to perform accurate measurements, analyze the results and relate the impedance to step load response and control loop stability. Registration is open, join us!
