High-Speed Data Transmission and Test
Sponsored by Anritsu

This eBook provides guidance from industry experts on how to make the best design decisions for data transmission beyond 56 Gbps and, then, how to best test it. Topics covered include jitter, BERTs, PAM4, and channel equalization schemes (including FEC, CTLE, FFE, and DFE). The authors of these articles look deeply into the test concerns, how to perform analysis, as well as theory, constraints, and costs. They examine hardware trade offs and share ways to ensure an optimal high-speed transmission design.

PCB and Interconnect Design 
Sponsored by Sierra Circuits and Samtec

One of the fundamental problems with high-speed design in general and PCB/interconnect designs in particular, is that problems tend to be intermittent and hard to troubleshoot. So, as a PCB designer, how do you avoid the headaches of mysterious SI or PI issues on board? How do you select the best interconnects for the job to make them as transparent as possible to your design? 

Articles written by SI/PI experts to learn about some of the finer points of PCB Design for high-speed applications.
