TE Connectivity (TE) will present and discuss a broad range of high-speed data communications and connectivity solutions at the DesignCon 2021 expo on Aug. 16-18, 2021, held at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

TE’s presentation and panel discussion will include:

  • System Design for 112G: Device characteristics, channel details and expected system performance – presented by Dr. Karl Bois, Ph.D., senior principal system technologist, TE Connectivity
  • Panel: “Interoperable Common Electrical Interfaces (CEI) and Channel Standards Update: An OIF Perspective” – Nathan Tracy, technologist and industry standards manager, TE Connectivity

Developed in collaboration with thought leaders from Amazon and Semtech, the whitepaper Bois and Tracy will present discusses major design aspects of system and device implementations at 112 Gb/s (PAM-4) per lane signaling rate. Emerging cutting-edge usage models are an indicator the market is pushing industry standards to adopt higher signaling speeds and connectivity technology. The contributing authors address passive interconnects, signal integrity characteristics, device package substrates, I/O equalization blocks and the latency resulting from Forward Error Correction (FEC) to meet required system Bit Error Ratio.

TE is a key contributor to industry standards and forums that enable future connectivity systems. TE’s Nathan Tracy, serving as OIF’s vice president of marketing, will lead a panel of OIF member experts discussing the status of CEI-112G and CEI-224G electrical interface implementation efforts. These standardization efforts will enable the next levels of cloud, service provider and enterprise computing and networking performance. TE’s thought leaders are committed to moving the industry forward through active advocacy of industry standards, such as participation in these efforts, where technical contributions are vital.
