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.
While a channel may pass a test, the remaining margin and thus its resilience against geometry or material variation in production may not be observable. However, such variations are critical because they may impede the performance or cause high volume manufacturing (HVM) products to fail. This coalition of authors has developed and demonstrated a polynomial chaos expansion (PCE) flow to analyze a full-featured 100GBASE-KR4 link starting from geometry specification to Channel Operating Margin (COM) margin at the receiver. Read on to see their award winning paper on the subject.
This detailed analysis offers a comparison of various calibration methods for pulse generators according to IEC/EN 55016-1-1 (CISPR 16-1-1), where the spectrum amplitude is measured using different methods and then the results are compared and the measurement uncertainty is determined.
Data converter based SerDes designs are gaining popularity due to their architecture flexibility as well as the capability to implement FFE through powerful DSP. This paper provides a theoretical analysis, realistic simulations and practical comparisons between TX side FFE and RX side FFE.
This paper is a case study on causality problems in PDNs during power-aware SI simulations. It covers the causality of a PDN, and it reveals the impact on a design if a causality check is not done on the PDN for the package or board.
It is important in high-speed digital applications to decrease the form factor and increase signal density by reducing isolating metal layers, all while preserving comparable crosstalk, loss and dispersion at the frequency of interest. This paper takes a look at how you can do that by showing how coplanar waveguide with smaller form-factor outperforms stripline in isolation and coupling.
