Webinar: 112 Gbps PAM4 Front Panel Connectivity - Real World Implementation And Correlation

Webinar: 112 Gbps PAM4 Front Panel Connectivity - Real World Implementation And Correlation

The road to 112 Gbps PAM4 channels, the basis for 800 Gbps front panel connectivity, is filled with twists, turns and demanding decisions. Design challenges including breakout regions, PCB stack-up, laminate selection, mechanical concerns, and more are obstacles that must be overcome.

Additionally, correlating real-world channels with simulated data offers designers, engineers, and system architects design assurance of next-gen front panel connectivity solutions. In this webinar, technical experts from Rohde & Schwarz and Samtec will presenting novel solutions that exceed the demands of next generation data transmission.

In this webinar you will learn: 

  • Introduction to novel high-density front panel connectivity options
  • Performance comparison of novel and MSA-compliant front panel connectivity solutions at 112 Gbps PAM4 data rates 
  • How to model and de-embed test fixtures using Vector Network Analyzers (VNA)
  • How to display a PAM4 eye diagram for a channel using a VNA
