Title: Online Panel: Challenges for 224 Gbps Systems

Date: February 23, 2024

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: Samtec and Alphawave Semi

Panel Participants: Eric Bogatin (University of Colorado Boulder - moderator), Scott McMorrow (Samtec) and Todd Bermensolo (Alphawave Semi)

The need for speed is the relentless driver for every higher data rate system. Each new advance in data rate and signal bandwidth brings with it a new set of challenges in interconnect and I/O transceiver technologies as well as the picks and shovels that enable shorter time to market ever more advanced systems. This panel discussion brings together experts in the industry to present solutions to the most difficult design and system challenges when migrating products from the 56 Gbps or 112 Gbps range into the 224 Gbps range. This panel is moderated by Prof Eric Bogatin.

Moderator: Eric Bogatin, Professor, University of Colorado Boulder
Panelist: Scott McMorrow, Strategic Technologist, Samtec, Inc.
Panelist: Todd Bermensolo, Principal Engineer, Alphawave Semi
