Scott McMorrow currently serves as CTO for Samtec’s Signal Integrity Group, Inc. As a consultant for years too numerous to mention, Scott has helped many companies develop high performance products, while training signal integrity engineers. Today he works for “the man,” where he continues being a problem solver, a change agent and “betting his job” every day.
Convergence in technology is not a new idea. The concept infers that disparate technologies evolve to a closer association or integration over time. Convergence occurs when any number of technologies, such as micro twinax cables, ASIC design, interconnects, advanced IC packaging, and others combine to offer a unique system-level solution. Many see convergence as required for 224 Gbps PAM4 system performance.
