Upcoming Webinars


Effective Return Loss for 112G and 56G PAM 4

This presentation proposes using a pulse echo for time domain reflectometry (TDR) rather the commonly used step function echo. The echoed pulse response of a single symbol is convolved with the modulation signal levels to produce an effective reflection coefficient metric at a specified bit error ratio (BER). A conversion to dB results in an effective return loss (ERL) in more familiar return loss units. ERL is a single value which replaces the commonly used frequency domain return loss (RL) mask. It makes RL grading simple, straightforward and meaningful.
