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
