A Tale of the Equations That Changed Everything

By By Davi Correia

When I first started studying Maxwell’s Equations, I was always intrigued by its mathematical finesse. How could someone think of that? Today we take them for granted and we sometimes forget how amazing they are and what a genius the guy was. In my view, James Maxwell should be with, if not above, Einstein and Newton among the greatest physicists to ever live, but outside our field people seldom know who Maxwell was.

Samtec Webinar

Effective Return Loss for 112G and 56G PAM 4 Webinar: Available On-demand

This webcast presented by Richard Mellitz, Distinguished Engineer at Samtec, 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. View the presentation to learn more.
