Fast-Track Deployment in PAM-4 Applications

Blog Post created by KeysightEEsofEDA Employee on Nov 30, 2016


PAM-4’s ability to increase the data rate without having to enhance the hardware channel has significant hardware cost advantages. The new transmitter and receiver technologies are already showing viability for PAM-4 end-to-end links. To fully exploit the advantages of PAM-4 signaling my colleagues, Heidi Barnes & Fangyi Rao, have published a great article at Signal Integrity Journals on "Fast-Tracking Deployment in PAM-4 Applications with Commercially-Available Software and Hardware Tools".  From this article, you can learn in details how a new measurement and simulation eco-system must be established and validated to fast track deployment in PAM-4 applications.
