Moving from 28 Gbps NRZ to 56 Gbps PAM-4 - is it "free lunch"?

By Yuriy Shlepnev

If we know how to design interconnects that correlate with the measurements for 28 Gbps NRZ, is it going to be a "free lunch" to move to 56 Gbps NRZ? Not so easily, as I learned recently. Read on to see how you can benefit from some analysis and validating your tools.

Fast Analysis of Sporadic Errors With Segmented Memory and History Function
By Rohde & Schwarz

Equipped with the R&S®RTB-K15 and the R&S®RTM-K15 options, the R&S®RTB2000 and the R&S®RTM3000 offer a history function with a segmented memory of 160/400 Msample per channel. The R&S®RTA4000 oscilloscopes provide a segmented memory of 1000 Msample per channel as standard. This covers analog and digital channels and the memory can be divided into several steps.
