Solving Optical PAM4 Measurement Challenges for 100G/400G Seminar-Santa Clara, CA
Tektronix Santa Clara Campus
4250 Burton Drive Santa Clara, CA United States
The adoption of optical and electrical PAM4 technology goes mainstream with the 400G/200G/100G/50G Ethernet standards in 802.3bs and 802.3cd. The characterization, compliance and troubleshooting of signals in these PAM4 standards are very different from earlier NRZ PAM2-based standards. During this session, designers and test engineers will learn how to make the measurements needed in the optical PHY Layer including TDECQ evaluation techniques.
Cost: Free, but registration is required.
Lunch will be provided.
9:00 – 9:30AM: Introduction, Coffee & Check-in
9:30 - 11:00 AM: First Part - Interactive Lecture
